I see the source code for that class - 

Is in System / System.Net ...  But I tried to compare it against .NET, and I don't see that class anywhere in .NET.  Do you have a link to that class description in MSDN?  And if it's not a .NET class, if it's something mono specific, maybe you should be doing something different such that you don't care anymore?

Whenever I find something such as this, which is a clear difference between .NET and Mono, sometimes it's a legitimate bug or missing feature, but most of the time it's just a matter of "You're doing something different from what they expected you to do."  Most of the time, you can make some minor change to your code, or how you're doing something, and get back to a state where everything simply works on both platforms.  

So the question is - What is it that you're *actually* trying to do, at a higher level?  (Assuming you didn't actually write code that directly uses HttpConnection)
