That's a test case for the bug fixed by your patch, right?  If so, the
next best thing is no doubt to get your test into the Mono test suite.
Hopefully that would mean that regressions would be caught somewhere.

It sounded like Andrew still has another Darwin issue.  It would be nice
to get that one pinned down.
