GetApplicationGuid returns an assembly version dependant value


The InstanceAwareApplication.GetApplicationGuid function returns a Guid value which is assembly-dependant, and takes into account the assembly version; this means that different versions of the same application can run at the same time.
While it could be an interesting scenario, it was not the expected behaviour and of course should not be the default one.
A possible solution is to mark GetApplicationGuid as virtual (and rename the function to GetApplicationId, since a Guid is not strictly required... ), providing a default implementation that computes a 'unique' string value based on the entry assembly (avoiding to use the assembly version or other values that can change often in the devlopment cycle).
