Hi Jimmy,

thanks for the feedback - comments inlined below:

It is Debug, not Silverlight Debug. I looked at the .csproj and saw
conditional references to these dll when SilverlightDebug is set.
It seems that the condition is not evaluated properly. Not a big deal
though, it seems to work, but could lead to weird things I guess.

ok, thanks.

Done: http://ironruby.codeplex.com/WorkItem/View.aspx?WorkItemId=597

Thanks - much faster.
