Description Alexey Yakovlev 2014-03-03 07:23:33 UTC
Logical call context should be transferred (as a part of execution context)
when a new thread is created. Here is a quote from MSDN:


>Within an application domain, the entire execution context must be transferred 
>whenever a thread is transferred. This situation occurs during transfers made by 
>the Thread.Start method, most thread pool operations, and Windows Forms thread 
>marshaling through the Windows message pump. 
>Internally, the ExecutionContext stores all data that is associated with the LogicalCallContext.
>This allows the LogicalCallContext data to be propagated when the ExecutionContext is copied and transferred.

The following code works on Microsoft.NET but doesn't work on Mono 3.2.x:
