I now realize the original post did not include that the problem is also seen
when GetResponse() is called from some thread other than the UI thread.  In
fact it is this scenario we really use.  The timer in the test example is used
as a simple way to have the call occur on some other thread.

Maybe there's some UI thread affinity issue in the Windows version which
results in a blocking behavior?

The problem arose for me when porting an application to Mono.  The application
makes REST calls to Amazon services on multiple threads and works fine on
Windows .NET but we saw these time out problems using Mono on Windows.
