I use gtk-sharp, cairo and friends for rendering pdf file's and it's
work great. 

But i got a problem..., When I run my application under Windows, the
pdf's are lower in quality as if I run my application under linux.

On Linux, I use mono 1.2.6, gtk-sharp 2.10 and cairo 1.4.10

On Windows, I use 
 - mono 1.2.6, gtk-sharp 2.10 and cairo 1.2.6 
 - .net1.1 with Medsphere gtk-sharp runtime

I guest that the quality difference is due to the difference of cairo

For some time now, I try without any success to upgrade the version of
Cairo used by gtk-sharp on windows, and I start to run out a idea...

For now, i have tried to recompile gtk-sharp with the instruction
provided here[1]. Also, I fetch the last version of Cairo from their web
site and updated libcairo2.dll from the Medsphere runtime directory. I
have also updated libpng and zlib. I have also replaced Mono.Cairo.dll
from a verion that come from my linux setup... 

I must admit that I do not understand everything involved here... so, I
ask for help ;)
