Right. The problem is that mono 1.2 fails horribly under wine, whereas
mono 1.1 works pretty well. I'm working on getting mono 1.2 to run
under wine, but having a fully-functional 1.1 runtime would help.
The intention is not to stick with 1.1.*, but use it until wine can
successfully host a 1.2 runtime.
