[Mono-devel-list] Monitor_exit from same thread required?

So this is probably a bug in the SqlDataClient implementation?  I am
opening and closing the SqlConnection with the same thread...

Windows is probably less thorough in its error checking. However,
it is illegal for a thread to unlock a monitor unless it currently
holds the lock on that monitor. Doing so has undefined behavior,
which is what you are seeing under Windows. (It just so happens
that "undefined behavior" in the Windows case just means "it
happens to work.")
