Description obadz 2014-12-18 19:07:02 UTC
This bit of F# code (which translates essentially word for word into C#) exposes the issue:

let req = System.Net.HttpWebRequest.Create("http://httpbin.org/post")
req.Method <- "POST"

  async {
    let cb = new System.AsyncCallback(fun iar -> printfn "Sync #1?: %A" iar.CompletedSynchronously)
    let iar = req.BeginGetRequestStream(cb, null)
    printfn "Sync #2?: %A" iar.CompletedSynchronously
    use s = req.EndGetRequestStream(iar)
    let x = System.Text.Encoding.ASCII.GetBytes("test=foo")
    do! s.AsyncWrite(x, 0, x.Length)
  } |> Async.RunSynchronously

Sync #2?: false
Sync #1?: true

I believe these two should agree. (In CLR they are both false).

This causes a deadlock in FSharp.Data when doing HTTP POST requests on Mono (but not CLR) as shown on https://github.com/fsharp/FSharp.Data/issues/762#issuecomment-67425153

Though I haven't exactly pinned it down, I believe the issue is in one of:

 - mono/mcs/class/System/System.Net/HttpWebRequest.cs
 - mono/mcs/class/System/System.Net/WebAsyncResult.cs
 - mono/mcs/class/System/System.Net/SimpleAsyncResult.cs
