Running OwinHost as daemon on Linux under mono exits prematurely


OwinHost starts up and then waits for enter to be pressed. On Linux/mono, when running as a daemon, a call to ReadLine() returns EOF immediately, causing OwinHost to exit prematurely.

There should be an option to do a Thread.Sleep(Timeout.Infinite) instead of a ReadLine().

Unfortunately Mono is not supported
