A WinForms application crashes randomly when UI update is happening at the same
time as the background thread is making heavy use of System.Drawing.

This happens on Linux and OS X.

The background thread is _not_ using Graphics objects created in the main
thread, nor it tries to interact with UI by any means.  All work is done on
Bitmap and Graphics objects allocated in the background thread.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Compile and run sample code.

Actual Results:  
Application crashes with gdb stack trace (the signal can be SIGSEGV, SIGABRT,
SIGILL, etc.).

Expected Results:  
Application shouldn't crash.  All started threads should complete their work
and exit, after writing a completion message on console.

Also tested on the latest 2.6 preview.

Uncommenting lock {} lines in test C# code helps to avoid crashes.

Crashes can be reproduced with only Graphics.FromImage and Graphics.Dispose
calls, w/o any actual drawing in the threads.
