Thanks, I found some thing similar on the list archives, and modified
the Main.cs file as created by monodevelop to this:

public class GladeApp : Gnome.Program
        public static void Main (string[] args)
                new GladeApp (args);

        public GladeApp (string[] args) : base ("thd", "0.1",
Modules.UI, args, new object [0])

                Glade.XML gxml = new Glade.XML (null, "thd.glade",
"app1", null);
                gxml.Autoconnect (this);


        /* Connect the Signals defined in Glade */
        public void on_app1_delete_event (object o, DeleteEventArgs
                Application.Quit ();
                args.RetVal = true;


Some things I dont quite get though, is "Application" a variable setup
some where?  is it the same as "Gtk.Application" ?

in this line:
public GladeApp (string[] args) : base ("thd", "0.1", Modules.UI, args,
new object [0])

what is "base" representing?  and where does it come from?

Thanks again.
