[Mono-dev] GTK# 2.12.9 installer breaks on upgrades

I was testing the newly created Smuxi installer on different systems
and found an important issue in the GTK# installer during that.
When GTK# 2.12.8 was already installed, and you install (it
automatically upgrades instead) 2.12.9 it will finish as everything
went fine. When you start any GTK# application now it will fail to
start the that low level "app crashed, do you want to send an useless
report now?" dialog. After some investigation I found that all GTK#
assemblies (glib-sharp, gtk-sharp, etc) are gone from the MS .NET GAC.
Under software it lists GTK# 2.12.9 (no .8, thus I assume it upgraded).
When removing GTK# 2.12.9 and installing it again, the assemblies are
back in the GAC and the GTK# application runs again.
I file a bugreport for this issue already here:
Besides this glitch, the new installers rock!
For the record: tested was Windows XP, Vista and 7 RC1
