[Mono-dev] Mutex Bug

Do you *have* to write to the same file?

I recently had to deal with a similar issue, but I decided to have each
thread/process write files that matched a regex, and a coordinating process
looking for files that matched the regex to read and consume.

So I wrote a file like file-<guid>.txt for each thread/process and the
parent used a FileWatcher to find new files that matched the regex.

Was a bit dirty, but it worked, and I think it was relatively platform
