[Gtk-sharp-list] Failing to use Gtk# on windows

A followup:

On Linux, I recompiled with mcs instead of gmcs, used gtk-sharp-1.0.
Runs OK on Linux, but crashes in the same place in Windows (in unmanaged
code, in show-all).

On Windows, I installed Gtk# for .Net using Paco's installer (from
Novell Forge), and recompiled the code in MS .Net 2003.  When I run, I
get an error about not being able to find the pango-sharp (or a
dependency) when the code first tries to get a pango-context.  I
recompiled using .Net 2003 and Gtk#-2, and I get an error about not
being able to find gtk-sharp (or a dependency).  I re-ran the script in
the Gtk# for .Net directory that adds things to the GAC, but it didn't


 gacco -q "pango-sharp"

reports a location for pango-sharp.dll which seems OK (it has the dll
and a file __AssemblyInfo__.ini).

I'm not sure what else I can do....
