+The patch won't (always) work on Windows as CryptoAPI RNG isn't thread
+safe - like any instance of the class. However moving the handle as a
+static field break this assumption.
+I'll look on how to fix this in the runtime (as the Windows code and
+Linux code is different at that level).
+Will your code be running on Mono 1.0.x or only 1.1.x ?
