Source file to test the bug.

Hi, I'm trying to export the metadata of a WCF nettcp service, the service works fine if I don't want to export metadata but It's a pain on the neck having to copy the assembly to the client application whenever I make a change on the server. I replicated a small example to show the exception I'm receiving. The application works just fine on Visual Studio.

In order to compile the service I run: gmcs -r:System.ServiceModel Main.cs
To run the service I just type: mono Main.exe

Sorry, I forgot to comment that the address is set as localhost, I'll post the code also here.

using System;
using System.ServiceModel;
using System.ServiceModel.Description;

namespace wcfservice
	public class Program
		public static void Main(string[] args)
			var uri = new Uri("net.tcp://localhost:9001/HelloService");
			var host = new ServiceHost(new HelloWorld(), uri);
			host.AddServiceEndpoint(typeof(IHelloWorld), new NetTcpBinding(SecurityMode.None), uri);
			ServiceMetadataBehavior smb = host.Description.Behaviors.Find<ServiceMetadataBehavior>();

			if (smb == null)
				smb = new ServiceMetadataBehavior();



			var behavior = host.Description.Behaviors.Find<ServiceBehaviorAttribute>();
			behavior.InstanceContextMode = InstanceContextMode.Single;

			Console.WriteLine("Hosted {0}", DateTime.Now.ToString());

	public interface IHelloWorld
		string Hello(string Name);
	[ServiceBehavior(InstanceContextMode=InstanceContextMode.Single, IncludeExceptionDetailInFaults=true,ConcurrencyMode=ConcurrencyMode.Reentrant)]
	public class HelloWorld : IHelloWorld
		public string Hello(string Name)
			return string.Format("Hello {0}", Name);
