[Mono-list] RE: Releasing Named Mutexes

I sent word to the customer reporting this issue within Vault.  They are
saying the named mutexes are still locked *days* after they send SIGINT
to a mono/Vault application on Mono within RedHat Ent v3.  The
sixty second behavior is not taking place.

What would be causing this behavior?  Is there anyway to release a mutex
in this state?
