According to the launchapd link that bug was fixed in Gtk+ version 
2.13.6. You will either have to
a) replace the Gtk+ 2.12 installation shipped with the Gtk# installer 
with a recent 2.14 version or
b) compile Gtk# 2.14 SVN using a Cygwin emulation environment(not easy; 
see http://www.mono-project.com/Compiling_Mono)
