If this is actually a problem with a library like mono then it sounds like
a caching problem. If you build mono from source then it's easier to look
into this...

Compare your code with this example. In the example, the .dll assembly is
re-loaded in a loop. You can see the clean up portion and the shutdown or
initialisation portions too:

https://github.com/ramin-zaghi/mono-embedding

Regarding how to compile code at runtime without a system() call, you can
use CodeDom (look it up) to compile from files, or in a mono-specific way
use Mono Compiler Service (e.g the Evaluator and CompilerContext classes -
google them) which allow you to evaluate partial expressions/statements/etc.

I use both depending on situation and they work pretty well. Roslyn is
apparently another option but let's not go there :)
