[Mono-list] Problem when loading embedded resources

Hi all,

To load a localized string, I've written a method like this:

public static string GetString(string name)
  lock(typeof(RM)) {
    if (resourceManager == null) {
      resourceManager = new ResourceManager("Gekkota.Core",

    return resourceManager.GetString(name, null);

Well, when invoking the method above, I always get the following error:

Unhandled Exception: System.Resources.MissingManifestResourceException:
Could not find any resource appropiate for the specified culture or its
parents (assembly:Gekkota.Core)
in <0x00330> 00 System.Resources.ResourceManager:InternalGetResourceSet
in <0x00097> 00 System.Resources.ResourceManager:GetString
in <0x0009f> 00 Gekkota.Core.RM:GetString (string)
in <0x00056> 00 Gekkota.Core.Listener:set_BufferSize (int)
in <0x0005f> 00 Gekkota.Core.Tests.Receiver:Main ()
I've looked inside my assembly, and it does contain the resources
I'm trying to retrieve...

The culture of my assembly is neutral, and I provide strings localized
to English, German, French, and Italian.

Furthermore, the code above works fine with .NET on Windows.
Any idea?
