Hi! for the record

I solved my problem by :
 - Installing the installer[1] of Gtk+.
 - Removing the "C:\Program Files\Medsphere\GtkRun\bin;" from the PATH
 - Copying all the "*sharpglue-2.dll" to "C:\Program Files\Gtk\bin".

That it, my gtk-sharp application now use cairo 1.4.14 which solve my
rendering problem's when I produce Pdf's.
