Let me be more specific.  If you use Gtk# from within the Mono 1.1.3 -- 
you do that by selecting the Mono command prompt from the Windows Start 
menu at Programs->Mono 1.1.3 for Windows->Mono 1.1.3 Command Prompt.

Now, the environment is configured to use all of the GTK+ binaries as 
well as all of Mono utilities.  This will allow you to execute 
gtkthemeselector.exe indifferent of what is your current directory.
