Mono 1.9 on Debian Linux system...

Trying Console.ForegroundColor = ConsoleColor.Red gives the following

System.ArgumentNullException: Argument cannot be null.
  at System.String.FormatHelper (System.Text.StringBuilder result,
IFormatProvider provider, System.String format, System.Object[] args) [
  at System.String.Format (IFormatProvider provider, System.String format,
System.Object[] args) [0x00000]
  at System.String.Format (System.String format, System.Object arg0)

  at System.ConsoleDriver.set_ForegroundColor (ConsoleColor value) [0x00000]
  at System.Console.set_ForegroundColor (ConsoleColor value) [0x00000]

I saw someone posted a message about using Console2 class... I think they
meant .net 2.0? 
Is there any other way to get color output?
I suppose writing VT102 commands (yuck).

Any ideas?
