+Version: 1.2
+OS Details: same behaviour on linux-x86 and darwin-ppc

+Priority: Wishlist
+Component: CORLIB

+Summary: Console.In.Read doesn't allow line-oriented input
+Consider this code snippet:
+    public static void Main()
+    { 
+        char[] buf = new char[16];
+        int n = Console.In.Read(buf, 0, 16);
+        Console.WriteLine("Hello {0}", new string(buf, 0, n));
+    }
+If you start typing the keys are not echoed back to the screen, and the
+program is blocked until you press 16 keystrokes. Then, only the last char
+typed is printed out to the screen.
+Mono has this behaviour; mono 1.1.17 and Microsoft CLR it works as
+I noticed that on the older version Console.In is of type
+System.IO.SynchronizedReader, while in the new one is of type
