[Mono-devel-list] Thread and Timer problems

We are recognizing some strange problems with Threads and Timers in our
1) Thread.Join sometimes hangs.
We are calling Thread.Join to wait for the end of a thread. The
thread function includes a Console.WriteLine as last statement.
This statement prints its text but Thread.Join never returns.
I was not able to reproduce this behaviour in a simple test case.
2) Timer.Dispose throws an exception.
We are getting following exception when disposing a Timer object:
[System.NullReferenceException] Object reference not set to an instance of an object
in (unmanaged) /lib/libpthread.so.0(pthread_cond_broadcast+0x34) [0x40bda194]
in (unmanaged) /usr/local/lib/libmono.so.0 [0x400e993e]
in (unmanaged) /usr/local/lib/libmono.so.0 [0x400e97c0]

in <0x00048> System.Threading.Timer:Dispose ()
in <0x0004f> (wrapper remoting-invoke-with-check) System.Threading.Timer:Dispose ()
Also not reproducible in a simple test case.
3) Using Timers the application never ends.
This one is reproducible. I have filed following bug report:
The same application works without problems under MS.NET. It's running in
an own AppDomain to allow auto update functionality. I don't know if this
might cause some of our problems. I was testing it with a CVS version
built some hours ago.
Are there any ideas what might cause these problems or how to fix/reproduce
