Description David Lambert 2014-03-20 06:35:53 UTC

So I'm trying to send a file like the following under OSX.

var webClient = new WebClient();
var waitHandle = new ManualResetEvent(false);
webClient.UploadFileCompleted += (sender, args) => waitHandle.Set();
webClient.UploadFileAsync(new Uri(url), "PUT", filePath);

When I trigger cancellation on the cancellation token, CancelAsync is called but the upload goes on and the UploadfileCompleted is also not fired at cancellation.

Best regards,

This targets Mono / .Net 4.0.
