[Mono-list] Opening a read only file

This might be answered somewhere else, if it is I'm sorry to waste
bandwidth, but I seem to have an odd problem. I'm trying to open a file that
I have read only permissions to as read only. This is the code I use:

FileStream mimeTypesFile = File.Open("/etc/mime.types", FileMode.Open);

This produces a System.UnauthorizedAccessException. If I set /etc/mime.types
to rw everything works. Is this a bug, or is there another way to open a
file read only?

On no, not I,
I'll CLI!
As long as I have Bash to use
I know I'll feel alive
