Monitor.Enter, Thread aborts and orphaned locks

Back from holiday from an intense ten days of biking and partying on Mallorca Port Sollér and Cala Ratjada I found this exiting article about the problem of Monitor.Enter when the entering thread is aborted at the “wrong” position in the code. I think it’s worth reading the article because developers should be aware about this.

Joe Duffy’s Weblog – Monitor.Enter, thread aborts, and orphaned locks

and “The moth’s” interesting hint about the new forthcoming API changes in .NET 4.0 regarding the problem mentioned in the above article.
