+Bug#: 61828
+Product: Mono: Runtime
+Version: unspecified
+OS: SUSE 9.0

+Status: NEW

+TargetMilestone: ---
+Summary: Socket.Handle does not return valid OS file descriptor.
+Description of Problem: With Mono on linux the Socket.Handle property does 
+not return a valid OS file descriptor. Mono on Windows or .NET does return 
+a valid FS which can be used for OS specific calls. I use OpenSSL and 
+require the FS to pass on to the OpenSSL library. Works fine on Windows 
+with both Mono and .NET.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Retrieve the Socket.Handle on a connected socket.
+2. Try and read or write to the socket using native calls. 
+Actual Results:
+Invalid File Descriptor.
+Expected Results:
+A successfull read or write operation.
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+Looking at Mono code it seems that Socket.Handle returns a handle to some 
+struct which contains the actual FS. This is a useless handle if it does 
+not return the actual OS File Descriptor. It should work like it does on
