The compiler CANNOT catch this.  There are two different compilers in
use, the C compiler and the C# compiler, and they don't talk to each
other. :-)

You can work around this issue somewhat.  Mono.Unix "solves" this
problem by using the create-native-map program (in the mono-tools svn
module), which reads the C# .dll file and generates a C header file for
all structs and [DllImport]-attributed methods to ensure some level of
consistency between what the C# code is calling and what the C code is
implementing.  However, this does require some extra effort.
