[Mono-list] Console ReadKey not blocking returning 0, Mono 2.8.1, linux

Hey, on to something now...I am actually piping to tee which seems to be the

   Mono an.exe | tee a.file

Removing the pipe cures the condition (| cat also breaks).  

Piping stdout shouldn't be affecting stdin right?

Haven't you redirected /dev/null or /dev/zero to stdin? ;)
