+Product: Mono: Class Libraries
+Version: unspecified
+OS Details: Fedora Core 5

+Summary: WebClient asynchronous hang
+Please fill in this template when reporting a bug, unless you know what you
+are doing.
+Description of Problem:
+When using the webclients asynchronous calls for download they never
+download anything
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Run the testsuite
+class MainClass
+	public static void Main(string[] args) {
+		WebClient w = new WebClient();
+		w.DownloadFileAsync(new Uri("http://www.google.com"), "google.html");
+		Thread.Sleep(60000);
+	}
+Actual Results:
+Nothing gets downloaded
+Expected Results:
+A downloaded file
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+Tracing the program shows that the webclient checks for its busy state
+before starting the download and in the asynchronous calls its set to true
+before the download starts and thus will never start or end.
+The version of mono is from fedora extras devel
