[Mono-dev] Patches for mono-winforms

What I do on Windows is only build WinForms, and that takes 2 seconds. But
this requires fixing the WinForms project first. (By the way, I tried
building Mono on Linux today, but got an error during the make... I'll have
to try again later.)

I can confirm this DgvTest works as expected. So I take it only the DgvTest
project was wrong, but the patch and unit test were correct.
