Description of Problem:

The ssl authentication does not work correct in my environment. This concerns
only the server, whereas the client works.

If I use the MS framework for the server part, I'm able to authenticate with
both a MS and a MONO client. But as soon as MONO takes the server part, no
working connection results (neighter with a MS client, nor with a MONO one). So
the client functionality is quite the same with both frameworks.

The problem is that the asynchronous callback function of the server is never
called in MONO, so that the server can't move along. In contrast (with both
frameworks) the client's async callback gets invoked and so the client beliefs
that a working sll connection is available, but of course cannot receive any
data, since the server does not correspond anymore.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Set up a client and a server, and let them connect via tcp.
2. Use a SslStream to authenticate client and server asynchronously. Let the
server use the BeginAuthenticateAsServer() function.

My call to this function is not spectacular and uses only simple parameters:

BeginAuthenticateAsServer(MyValidCert, false, SslProtocols.Default, false, new
AsyncCallback(asyncCallback), MyContext);

Actual Results:

Although the client does it's part, the server never calls it's own callback

Expected Results:

With the MS framework the server's callback is invoked in zero time and a
working ssl connection results. Tested a thousand times already.

How often does this happen? 

Always (on Windows).

Additional Information:

Tested with MONO 2.0 rc1.
