[Mono-dev] Patches for mono-winforms

OK, I can now run Mono under MS Windows.  The last version of my test-project (attached again, for your convenience) now dies where it's supposed to in an unpatched Mono, i.e. it gets past 1-1.

I'm already checking with OS I'm on in this test.  Apparently that wasn't enough.  My guess is that I'm running into some other incompatibility between .NET and Mono, one way outside the scope of my bug fix.  But the enclosed test-project checks both for MS Windows and for the absence of Mono before using the god-awful P/Invoke-based mouse click.

Rob: I'm trying to build latest Mono on MS Windows, and have applied the patch you posted yesterday.  I'll let you (and everyone else) know how far I got.  Hopefully I'll be able to run the enclosed test-project against it successfully & FINALLY get this patch committed.

MY GOD, building Mono under MS Windows is slow.  I don't realize how spoiled I am by Linux until times like this.

Hah. To run the application with Mono on Windows, you should use the Mono
command prompt, and run the application using the "mono myapp.exe" command.
The default window icon is different, which will confirm the application is
run with Mono.
For what it's worth, P/Invokes should work with Mono on Windows. So if you
have to use P/Invokes, maybe you shouldn't check with framework the
application is running on, but which OS you're on.

"And re: getting bug fixes accepted, and WinForms not being a priority for
the Mono project...what about the bug fix for GetFileSystemEntries() I
posted a week ago?  That's not WinForms, and I haven't heard a peep about

I don't know. I'm not on the Mono team, and only deal with WinForms.
