                    almost always fails and throws an Exception.

Includes Test.cs and TestFile.xml

Start multiple threads and each creates its own XmlDocument from the same file.
Then each of those threads starts multiple threads to read their XmlDocument. 
While reading each thread uses XmlNode.SelectSingleNode().  SelectSingleNode
will very frequently return null when it should have returned an XmlNode. 
Sometimes an Assertion Exception will be thrown also.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Extract the attached zip file.  It should contain Test.cs and TestFile.xml
2. Compile Test.cs.  Using gmcs or csc.  Ex.  csc Test.cs
3. Run at the console  (  >mono Test.exe  ).  If it completes successfully, run
it again.
Actual Results:  
Actual Results Vary.  I have seen it complete successfully, but normally one of
the errors below occurs.

Most Common Is : 

Unhandled Exception: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to
an instance of an object
  at System.Xml.XPath.CompiledExpression.EvaluateNodeSet
terator iter) [0x00000]
  at System.Xml.XPath.XPathNavigator.Select (System.Xml.XPath.XPathExpression
pr, IXmlNamespaceResolver ctx) [0x00000]
  at System.Xml.XPath.XPathNavigator.Select (System.Xml.XPath.XPathExpression
pr) [0x00000]
  at System.Xml.XmlNode.SelectSingleNode (System.String xpath,
espaceManager nsmgr) [0x00000]
  at System.Xml.XmlNode.SelectSingleNode (System.String xpath) [0x00000]
  at SelectNodeTests.Program.RepeatedMetadataNodeLookUp
eadData data) [0x00000]
  at SelectNodeTests.Program.ReadDocument (System.Object arg) [0x00000]

This has happened a couple times : 

System.Xml.XPath.NullIterator doesn't implement interface

* Assertion: should not be reached at ..\mono\mini\mini-trampolines.c:67

This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way.
Please contact the application's support team for more information.

Expected Results:  
"Done" Displayed on the console.
