+Bug#: 75273
+Product: Mono: Class Libraries
+Version: 1.1
+OS: NLD 9

+Summary: The 'process.HasExited' flag does not give a correct value
+Description of Problem:
+In my program, I am creating a new process. I read from the redirected 
+output/error streams of the process till the timeout is occuring or the 
+streams close. (The streams will close when the process ends) 
+After this, I make a check to see if the process has exited by using 
+the 'process.HasExited'flag.
+Even in the case when the process has exited, and the error/output 
+streams have closed, the 'process.HasExited' flag returns a false value, 
+which is incorrect.
+I see this problem in the latest version of mono i.e. In the 
+earlier version of mono like (1.1.3) this works fine and returns a true 
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Compile and Execute the attached test code
+Actual Results:
+In this test code, there is a class called Executor which launches a new 
+process to do the operation 'cp a b'. The timeout value is set to 20 
+secs, but this process would end much before the timeout occurs. Still 
+pr.HasExited returns a false value.
+Expected Results:
+pr.HasExited should give a true value.
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+When this testcode is executed with mono version 1.1.3, pr.hasExited 
+correctly returns a true value.
