[Gtk-sharp-list] Problems using the new constructors for FileChooserDialog

Trying to run such a thing:

   using (FileChooserDialog chooser =
      new FileChooserDialog ("Choose new picture file",
this.MainWindow, FileChooserAction.Open,
      Stock.Cancel, ResponseType.Cancel, Stock.Open, ResponseType.Ok)) {

Unhandled Exception: System.InvalidCastException: Cannot cast from
source type to destination type.
in <0x0018f> Gtk.FileChooserDialog:.ctor
in [0x00033] (at

Well it is choosing the wrong overloaded constructor, as monodis tell us:

	IL_0033:  newobj instance void class
['gtk-sharp']Gtk.FileChooserDialog::.ctor(string, class
['gtk-sharp']Gtk.Window, valuetype ['gtk-sharp']Gtk.FileChooserAction,
string, object[])

Because the signatures are somewhat ambiguous, that is why I reordered
one parameter in my previous patch...

I reopened bug 71818 (http://bugzilla.ximian.com/show_bug.cgi?id=71818)

I'll try to build another patch...
