Description Alexander Köplinger 2015-08-10 07:58:08 UTC
Run the following in mono/mcs/class/System:

> while [ $? -eq 0 ]; do make check TESTNAME=System.Diagnostics.ProcessTest.DisposeWithDisposedStreams; done

After a few iterations, it'll fail with:

I don't think it's a problem with the test itself, as it basically just does Process.Start at that point, so I think it's a bug somewhere in FileStream. Maybe related to the recent move to SafeFileHandle?

Note: I can't seem to reproduce this outside of the testsuite (i.e. by copying the code into a console app).

CCing Marek as he added the test, maybe he has some insights?
