The application was usenext (the high-level usenet client for the usenext.de usenet services). I installed mono from macports and usenext is still(?) working (I never tried to use it after uninstalling the mono-framework from mono-project.com, so I don't *know* that it would have failed)

However, trying to install mono-basic fails trying to access shared memory under /var/empty/.wapi (file does not exist). Also, mono-addins refuses to install because the only +universal it understands is i386 & ppc, not x86_64.

So I'm going to leave it here unless anyone else wants to dig deeper.
