Hi Mark,

Thanks for the detailed bug report and the test program.  Mark, myself
and Nagappan had offline discussions on how to narrow down the issue and
it stands fixed as of rev# 101411 and 101414 in mono-1-9 branch. 

His detailed bug report is here:

Revert back in case of any regression or new bugs.
