[Mono-dev] Patches for mono-winforms

Mono doesn't seem to freak out either..

I followed the instructions here for creating a dialog:

Created the project in Visual Studio, modified the program.cs so instead 
of calling Application.Run(new Form 1), it instead does something like:

Form Form1 = new Form1();

I compiled and ran this in windows - fine.

I then brought the binary (.exe) over to my linux partition and ran it 
in mono and it ran fine.
