I experimented with mkbundle on linux recently and found that the result always segfaults if linked against libmono-2 (the default), in the garbage collector code; even for simply application, it segfaults at start.

If I modify the final linking step in mkbundle to link against libmonosgen-2, then the generated binary is functional.

This seems to be a mono-boehm vs mono-sgen bitrot in mkbundle, or embedding mono.
