Sadly, csc/VS name embedded resources including some funky combination
of directories or somesuch in the resource name when including them. If
you use monodis or ildasm on the generated assembly, you can see that
the resource name isn't simply 'HegloTransportes.glade' on windows, but
probably 'some/path/to/HegloTransportes.glade'. Most of the time you can
get around this by making some helper method to trim off path names from
strings before passing them to the Glade.XML methods.
