 Linux code is different at that level).
 Will your code be running on Mono 1.0.x or only 1.1.x ?

+The fact that you guys are getting > 1 k instances of this class open 
+at the same time is not good. It sounds like somebody is leaking the 
+instances. Are you explicitly calling dispose? Who knows if msft.net 
+has issues with 1000's of handles to the RNG open at the same time?
+Not saying that the optimization shouldn't be done, just that it is 
+probably not a good idea to rely on finalizers to clean up things in 
+a server...
