[MonoDevelop] Monitor.Wait return false immediately on Mono Runtime

you have built a beautiful example of a racing condition.
Let me explain what your code does in my opinion:
1. Spawn thread that executes Async()
2. Ensleeps this thread for 3 seconds
=> Now it is unsure how far the thread was able to execute: is it already
sitting on the lock?
3. 3 seconds passed, thread is resumed and the Main method as well
=> Now it depends on first: the thread already sitting on the lock? and
second: how quickly a thread can be resumed by the runtime?
==> Depending on those (multiple) speed conditions either the main method
or the thread will reach the lock first!
Your example shows us that .NET and Mono is implemented different in that
