Description Tomas Jansson 2017-10-03 20:42:21 UTC
I have project where I use paket (https://fsprojects.github.io/Paket/) to maintain my nuget packages. The paket.depedencies has the following content:

source https://www.nuget.org/api/v2
nuget Akka 1.2.3
nuget Akka.FSharp 1.2.3
nuget Suave 2.2.1
nuget Akka.Cluster.Sharding 1.3.1-beta51
nuget FsPickler 4.0.0
nuget System.Net.Security 4.3.2
nuget FSharp.Core 4.2.3

running `mono .paket/paket.exe install` yields a StackOverflowException. I first thought it was a paket bug so I filed this issue there: https://github.com/fsprojects/Paket/issues/2790. It turned out that it wasn't reproducible on Windows, so it seems like it is a mono bug. 

The top of the stacktrace:

I couldn't reproduce with Mono (2017-10/ce494e3d152).

The steps I took are:

 - download https://github.com/fsprojects/Paket/archive/5.122.0.zip
 - unzip Paket-5.122.0
 - cd Paket-5.122.0
 - mono .paket/paket.exe install

Can you still reproduce with latest mono?

Thank you
