+Summary: System.Diagnostics configuration sometimes doesn't work
+Description of Problem:
+system.diagnostics section of application config sometimes doesn't work.
+I'll demonstrate it with a broken TraceSwitch, but I believe the same bug
+triggers also other problems.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. compile "attached" SwitchTest.cs
+2. run it with "attached" SwitchTest.exe.config
+Actual Results:
+It prints out "Level: Off"
+Expected Results:
+"Level: Error" (as specified in .config)
+How often does this happen? 
+Every time.
+Additional Information:
+The problem is triggered by a TextWriterTraceListener in addition to a
+Commenting out the second listener in TestSwitch.exe.config "solves" the
+I tried to track down the problem, but having no experience in Mono, I
+couldn't find the exact place of error.
+However, I could establish that:
+DiagnosticsConfigurationHandler.AddTraceListeners is called several times,
+every time trying to add all listeners (I believe it shouldn't!)
+AddTraceListener throws a "Sharing violation on path log.log" exception
+when called for the second time.
+I guess that after such exception the whole system.diagnostics config
+section becomes broken in the application (but it's just a guess).
+Files used:
+--- SwitchTest.cs ---
+using System;
+using System.Diagnostics;
+namespace SwitchTest
+    class Program
+    {
+        static void Main(string[] args)
+        {
+            TraceSwitch ts = new TraceSwitch("t", "t");
+            Console.WriteLine("Level: {0}", ts.Level);
+        }
+    }
+--- End of SwitchTest.cs ---
+--- SwitchTest.exe.config ---
+<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
+        <system.diagnostics>
+                <switches>
+                        <add name="t" value="1" />
+                </switches>
+                <trace>
+                        <listeners>
+                                <clear/>
+                                <add name="configConsoleListener"
+type="System.Diagnostics.ConsoleTraceListener" />
+                                <add name="logfileListener"
+                                        initializeData="log.log" />
+                        </listeners>
+                </trace>
+        </system.diagnostics>
