We don't have that problem - We have servers with a whole bunch of clients continuously connecting simultaneously, and both the connection time and the throughput perform well and reliably.  My main concern is the lack of upkeep - mono SslStream doesn't support TLS 1.2, and receives very little development/maintenance attention.

Hmm...  I mentioned having outstanding pull request that gets no attention...
