[Mono-list] Console.ReadLine.Split -> NullReferenceException

Trying to read input from the console, I get a NullReferenceException at
runtime. I'm not even prompted for input.

int arg1 = 0, arg2 = 0;
Console.WriteLine("Enter input: ");
string[] sInput = Console.ReadLine().Split(new char[] {' '});
Enter input:

Unhandled Exception: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not
set to an instance of an object
  at test.MainClass.Main (System.String[] args) [0x0000e] in

Is anyone else getting this? I'll report it on Bugzilla, unless someone
can see something I'm overlooking.
