It opens fine, however doesn't pickup any keyboard input. (csharp.bat)

>csharp --version
Mono C# compiler version
Mono C# Shell, type "help;" for help

I've the same problem with mono 3.12.0. If I start csharp.bat it opens fine, but keyboard doesn't work. If I start csharp.exe without mono prefix it works, but, in some cases, it crashes.

This doesn't seem to happen anymore (tested with Mono 5.11)
