           Summary: Doing 'create file' on opened file without file
                    sharing causes data corruption.
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Class Libraries
           Version: 2.6.x
          Platform: i686
        OS/Version: Ubuntu
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal

C# sample to reproduce the bug

1. Create a text file named "file.txt" with any text, e.g. "1234".

2. Open the file for appending and write data to it

FileStream fs1 = new FileStream("file.txt", FileMode.Append, 
fs1.Write (System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes ("2222"), 0, 4);

3. Try to create a file with the same name. This throws an IOException

FileStream fs2;
  fs2 = new FileStream("file.txt", FileMode.Create, 

catch (IOException ex)
  fs1.Close ();
  Console.WriteLine ("Exception as expected!");

Actual Results:

- An IOException AS EXPECTED
- the file data is modified unexpectedly.
After running the program the file "file.txt" contains data:


After appending the string "2222" the second access (create) overrides the
data at the beginning of the file. 

When a fs1.Flush() was inserted at the end of step 2 the behaviour changes.
Then the complete file is empty (zero length).

Expected Results:

- An IOException
- The following file data:


A test under Windows 7/.NET 2.0 shows the desired results.

How often does this happen? 

Every time.
