[Gtk-sharp-list] app runs on windows, not on linux

Hi Travis,

Generally UTF-8 is the best choice as the encoding for xml, including
Glade, files.

But beware of any post-processing that may be occurring, like
translation extraction/substitution or resource embedding. They must
be redone after changing the encoding of the glade files. Take care
the while xml parsers normally can accept well many encodings (if
correctly instructed in the processing directive), some of those
post-processing tools may not understand that and may have to be
manually instructed.

Good luck,

As I'm currently working a lot with Java and even fixing Java VMs
(JamVM/Kaffe) and GNU Classpath code, I think I may partly borrow the
title (Javaman) from my friend Bruno Souza and become the
MonoNJavaMan. Yeah, I may currently be crazier than usual...
