In my zeal to get 0.5 out the door finally this weekend with a working
win32 build system, I managed to break signals for events defined
outside of the Gtk namespace.  Thanks to Duncan for bringing this to my

I had to do some restructuring of the generated namespaces that mcs had
been allowing us to abuse.  csc was much less forgiving. All of the
event handlers and event args are now generated in a corresponding #
namespace (eg Gnome object signal helpers are in GnomeSharp).

I forgot to change the code that instantiates Signal Args to use the new
namespacing. Since we use reflection to create EventArgs subclasses from
typename strings in the signal system, the compiler was happy to let me
overlook it.  

Anyway, I've verified that current cvs now runs scribble, fifteen, and
button, so I think all is in order. Mea culpa, hopefully I can get a
quick 0.6 out this week.
