I'm looking at a problem on FreeBSD/amd64 running web services. Last known
to work with our code was (yeah i know its old). I'm testing this on
1.9 from the BSD# project.
For the record the same code works as expected on mono/xsp 1.9 on Linux.

The application throws "Thread was aborted exception", for one the processes
executed to compile the asp.net code. (Though the first one completes just
While waiting for the processes to exit in
the process returns WAIT_IO_COMPLETION.

However the initial problem I encountered was different. While in the above
function, I was getting a NullReferenceException (in StreamReader) while
trying to
read stderr/stdout before WaitForExit. After making sure the code generated
for asp.net
was compiling without any errors, I disabled the redirection and assigned
empty strings
to the mcs_output/mcs_stdout.  Next show stopper was the "Thread was aborted

I know the above is not much of a help, but I'm still debugging and try to
to figure out what is happening
so that I can provide a decent bug report and possibly a patch for this.

Though if anyone has an idea what might be going wrong, looking at my
horrible explanation above,
would be great to share any ideas.
