That's it! Mono is loaded with LoadLibrary, but before that is done,
there were some threads that had already been initialized and like you
said GC must have missed those. So when I load Mono before threads are
initialized and remove that mono_runtime_exec_managed code and I'm not
getting that GC -error anymore. And the best part is that I can run
that program as many times as I want without any errors :)

Thanks a lot Robert!

By the way, do you know how exactly Mono uses those threads? I'm just
wondering if it has any affect on the normal use of our server-client
