[Mono-list] Named mutex not working

I am using mono 2.10.6 under ubuntu 11.04.

Using the following line:
bool lWasMutexCreated;
Mutex lSystemMutex = new Mutex(true, "SystemMutex", out lWasMutexCreated);

The mutex is always acquired and created even if ran from multiple
concurrent processes. I also tried using Mutex(false, "SystemMutex");
with WaitOne() on the mutex and it always succeeds to acquire the
mutex even when it clearly shouldn't.

Are named mutexes supported under mono?
