I was playing with a custom installed copy of gecko-sharp, I had a
local copy of the gecko-sharp.dll and gtkembedmoz.dll and the bunch of
GRE DLLs with my EXE, everything was ok (ok, everything but forms,
they werent doing anything) I just removed all that and installed
GRE-GeckoSharp-1.7.3-0.3.exe, the GtkEmbedTest runs Ok, but when I run
my project it crashes when Showing the WebControl... i get a null
reference exception, this is the output:

--- snip ----
gtkmozembed: realizing
gtkmozembed: initializing window
gtkmozembed: realizing window
An unhandled exception of type 'System.NullReferenceException'
occurred in gtk-sharp.dll

Additional information: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

Unhandled Exception: The program '[1172] SET.exe' has exited with code 0 (0x0).
System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance
of an object.
   at Gtk.Widget.gtk_widget_show(IntPtr raw)
   at Gtk.Widget.Show()
   at SET.App.Main(String[] args) in c:\documents and
settings\sergio\my documents\visual studio projects\set\app.cs:line

--- snip ---

i'm trying to run this code:
		static void Main(string[] args) 
			Window win = new Window("test");
			WebControl wc = new Gecko.WebControl();

I even tried the GtkMozApp source code and got the same results...

I'm running on VS.Net 2003, Gtk# 1.9.2... I installed the
GRE-GeckoSharp package previously mentioned, am I missing something
