+Summary: Writing to the console hangs helloworld program
+Description of Problem:
+A simple program (like helloworld) hangs under the following condition :
+- is compiled with gmcs v1.1.18
+- is launched detached from console (with & at the end of the line)
+- writes to the console (Console.WriteLine)
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Compile the following code with gmcs 1.1.18 :
+public class HelloWorld
+    public static void Main(string[] args)
+    {
+        System.Console.WriteLine("Hello World");
+    }
+2. Run the program from the console with the following command :
+mono helloworld.exe &
+Actual Results:
+Process is started and nothing happens. The process gets "Stopped".
+Expected Results:
+"Hello World" is written to the console
+How often does this happen? 
+Additional Information:
+I don't think it happen with gmcs v1.1.17.x
+It does not happen if the program is compiled with mcs v1.1.18
+It does not happen if the program is launched attached to the console
+(without the &) :
+mono helloworld.exe
+I will attach a trace
