Disabling garbage collection in Mono prevents the crash but after
executing the external process the C# program does not continue on, it
just sits there.  So that isn't a viable option for regular use.

Worse, mono ships with Boehm 6.2.  I linked against 6.4 from ports
(where threading support is not even enabled by default) and Mono is now
failing to compile.  Mono's mcs compiler hangs at the same spot on
-STABLE and -CURRENT.  Once Mono imports a later Boehm, FreeBSD is in
for some serious problems.
