           Summary: System.IO.Directory.GetFiles throws IOException
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Runtime
           Version: 2.8.x
          Platform: x86-64
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P5 - None
         Component: io-layer

There seems to be a race condition where if a file is enumerated in
System.IO.GetFiles and then immediately deleted, an IOException is thrown as

System.IO.IOException : Win32 IO returned ERROR_NO_MORE_FILES. Path: /tmp
  at System.IO.Directory.GetFileSystemEntries (System.String path,
System.String searchPattern, FileAttributes mask, FileAttributes attrs)
[0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 
  at System.IO.Directory.GetFiles (System.String path, System.String
searchPattern) [0x00000] in <filename unknown>:0 

Looking at FindFirstFile in mono/io-layer/io.c:

    if (handle != INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE &&
        !FindNextFile (handle, find_data)) {
        FindClose (handle);
        SetLastError (ERROR_NO_MORE_FILES);
        handle = INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE;

So it looks like if a file is enumerated but disappears, FindFirstFile sets the
last error to ERROR_NO_MORE_FILES. The wrapper code in mono/metadata/file-io.c
in ves_icall_System_IO_MonoIO_GetFileSystemEntries, checks for
ERROR_FILE_NOT_FOUND and returns an empty array. It does not however check for

One suggestion is to check for ERROR_NO_MORE_FILES in
ves_icall_System_IO_MonoIO_GetFileSystemEntries and return an empty array.
