Internationalization: not loading resource dlls

We have an app (ASP.NET web page). It uses the resource manager to load resources in a specified language from satellite assemblies.

For some reason, while this worked once, it no longer works but now loads all strings from the English stored in the assembly. And the archives of the build got messed up, so going back and finding out when it broke is hard.

Anyone have suggestions on debugging it?

If any parameters are changed, it fails with the expected error (e.g. switch the namespace used in the resource compiler and it won't be able to load anything). If you watch the assemblies loaded in the Visual Studio debugger, the satellite assembly gets loaded at the expected time.

Fixed it--nant doesn't build satellite builds quite right with csc.
