[Mono-dev] Win Patches for Datagrid (first here) then idle

Now that you modified patch 1, I had to modify patch 2 so it would apply
correctly, I've attached it (I'm testing just like you're testing, i'm
starting with a clean mono tree and applying the patches one by one as
you apply them or just before you would in this case)

I just deleted a section that fixed up whitespace in something you
already modified yourself.

My next e-mail should be with the unit tests as a patch, which i will
submit after i finish my own testing first as a standalone unit test,
then i'll build it into the unit tests.
