[Gtk-sharp-list] Could someone explain why this is crashing?

I commented them out so I could see what would work. Here's an example 
of what went wrong for example. I added a Frame named frame1 to it and 
put [Widget] Frame frame1; in there just like the tutorial for Glade# 
does, and that failed too. It's always stuff that derives from 
Gtk.Container that seems to fail on my system.

I am at a loss as to what the problem is because AFAIK I am using the 
right names. I have been basically pouring over the monodocs over the 
last few days so I can't see how the names aren't being mapped 
correctly. I am compiling against package gtk-sharp-2.0 as well in order 
to make sure that I'm getting the right namespaces.

Thanks for the input, I'll try Glade.Widget with some of those.
