If we can figure out exactly why it's happening, we can probably just
cut-and-paste the body of the function but with a much larger buffer

Yeah, that would work too.

This is probably not necessary; the file in question hasn't been
changed since March 2006.  And the way it resizes the StringBuilder's
capacity is a pretty common one, and one I think we actually use
ourselves in Beagle for file names.

True. But I'll do it anyway. I have already begun with a build in my virtual machine.

Indeed.  Does Lukas's small test case also trigger it for you?

It's mostly Lukas's code that I have been using when testing on various machines. Just accessing the "MachineName"-property triggers the crash. So we are definitely seeing a mono bug here (especially since a lot of people seem to be able to reproduce the behaviour).
