IMHO, the real solution is to offer a wrapper that takes a TreeNode. A
consumer of NodeStore should *never* have to see a path.

I filed one similar bug:

		view.RowExpanded += delegate (object o, RowExpandedArgs args) {
			TreeNode n = (TreeNode) Store.GetNode (args.Path);
			n.PopulateChildrenAsync ();

Shows up in my msdn browser code. Really, the RowExpanded events should
have the TreeNode as an argument, rather than forcing some incantation
like this.
