Description Grégoire Seux 2014-12-18 10:21:35 UTC
System.IO.SynchronizedStream does not override Close method from Stream.

This leads to unexpected behavior after calling Close on this stream.

For instance:

> var _stream = Stream.Synchronized(new MemoryStream());
> _stream.Close();
> _stream.CanRead // return true

usual streams do return false when CanRead is called after Close

This is due to Close not closing the underlying stream, whereas CanRead forward the call to it.
