[Mono-dev] Program not able to exit after using MySql-Connector

Hopefully this question was not asked before but during my efforts to connect
to a mysql database I encountered a problem. After a connection has been
established the program is not able to quit anymore. At the end of the
Main-Method it simply keeps running.

The following sample code is not able to exit (after a connection has been
established succesfully). If an error occures the program will exit.

(This small example is inspired from the mono page
IDbConnection dbcon = null;

string connectionString =
  "Server=localhost;" +
  "Database=dbname;" +
  "User ID=user;" +
  "Password=password;" +
dbcon = new MySqlConnection(connectionString);

dbcon = null;

I executed this sample program with mdb (mono debug) and it showed me that
for the connection 3 threads got started from which only 1 stoped normally.

I am using mono 1.2.6 with MySql Connector (Ubuntu repo).

Under windows the sample program (and similar ones) exit without problems,
even with the MySql Connector from the Ubuntu repos.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a serious problem?

Thanks for every single answer,

- Clas
