Created attachment 9402 [details]
The attached sample demonstrates the issues. Monitor.TryEnter returns false when it is expected to return true.
**Steps to Reproduce:**
1. Run the attached sample on an iOS simulator
2. Press the "Start" button.
3. Wait ~30 seconds until there is an "Error enter" log. The red number at the bottom will also increase.
Monitor.TryEnter returns false
Monitor.TryEnter should always be returning true in this sample.
This is the expected logic
- Do work for 500 ms
- wait 1000 ms
- Repeat until canceled
**Build Date & Platform:**
We have checked and getting same behavior as mentioned in bug description , there is an "Error enter" log and then red number at the bottom will also increase. Screencast: http://www.screencast.com/t/M6q8uS7ne

That's seems to be a runtime/BCL issue (the only iOS parts are the UI)
-> Rodrigo (for assigning it to the right person).
This code is broken, you cannot exit a monitor on a different thread than the one that acquires it.
It's failing because it's never unlocking and you're overflowing the recursion counter.
Rodrigo, can you please explain why the thread is different?
Sure, there's an await in between locking and unlocking. This cause the context to switch to another thread.
Context switches during await only if task is configured to do so.
From what I know await returns on the same thread as it was before, that is the idea.
From this article's presentation:
“Await task” uses the sync context
1. It captures the current SyncContext before awaiting.
2. Upon task completion, it calls SyncContext.Post() to resume “where you were before”
Also (I know it's not argument, but) on native .net we have never been able to reproduce problem with the exactly same code.
