Subject: [Mono-list] Buffering for StreamWriter
: I've added buffering to StreamWriter.  I had to tweak System.Console too
: order for it to work properly.  As the docs say, you must call Close() on
: the stream writer to ensure the buffer is written to the stream.  So, I
: Console use AutoFlush on the stream writer.

I always call Flush() on StreamWriter before calling Close().  Is that
unnecessary?  And if you Flush() but don't Close(), is the file properly
closed anyway when the StreamWriter goes out of scope?
