Thank you for your response!

Unfortunately it made no difference in my case. I am thinking this works for
some applications but not all (such as ffmpeg).

Is the ManualResetEvent needed for this to work? I am not using Linux or
compiling anything myself. I am using the lastest stable release of Mono
Mac, v.2.10 together with MonoDevelop. I used the SDK installer.

The bug has previously been noted here:

This sample will work:

But *not* for ffmpeg in my case (same code as above just changing the path).
Maybe that application somehow behaves in a different way? It's strange I
can see the output in MonoDevelop (in the console window) but not from code.

I also looked into NSTask and NSPipe but it seems NSPipe isn't even
available in 2.10 unless I am missing something.
