[Mono-dev] Fix for using GTK# in mono embedded application

thanks for the quick replay. I am not sure if this will fix the problem. I
think the problem is that you can not call Environment.GetCommandLineArgs()
when you embed mono.
Environment.GetCommandLineArgs() is an internal call and it seems like it
is not registered when you embed mono.
