Once again it pays off to be in this game... erm industry for so long: I got a weird  Fusion loading error for an assembly:

System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown by the target of 
an invocation. ---> System.IO.FileNotFoundException: File or assembly name ConsoleControl, 
or one of its dependencies, was not found.

File name: "ConsoleControl"  at ConsolePad..ctor()

=== Pre-bind state information ===
LOG: DisplayName = ConsoleControl, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null
 (Fully-specified) LOG: Appbase = C:\SharpDevelop\Repository\SharpDevelop\bin\
LOG: Initial PrivatePath = NULL Calling assembly : ConsoleAddin, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null. === LOG: Policy not being applied to reference at this time (private, custom, partial, or location-based assembly bind). LOG: Post-policy reference: ConsoleControl, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null LOG: Attempting download of new URL file:///C:/SharpDevelop/Repository/SharpDevelop/bin/ConsoleControl.DLL.

The assembly of course was right smack where the above URL is pointing to. So what was going on? First, I mailed the dev - no such luck, it was working on his machine (as if I would care: "I don't care if it runs on your machine, we are not shipping your machine!", Software Testers Anonymous).

As the test machine is a non-SDK machine (runtime installed only), fuslogvw was also out of the question. Mer...veilleux. Fallback to tools a C++ programmer loves and knows: Dependency Walker. This guy produced the following output:

A-ha! The dev checked in an assembly that was written in C++ (and thus he had all the runtime assemblies on his box), but he forgot the two beauties msvcp71 and msvcr71. Chalk one up for the old dogs.
