Finding documentation on Gtk# GUI development is really a problem. After 
some time I found the developer resource section of the Mono page 
(http://www.mono-project.com/Category:Developer_Resource). The problem 
with the Mono Wiki in general is that most articles completly outdated 
and some are full of errors . Generally I prefer MSDN if I can use it. 
"Normal" visitors are not allowed to change the Mono Wiki. A good way 
would be to allow changes by users with approval of one of the 
developers. As I am definitly not the only user who is annoyed by the 
Wiki(see IggyMa's blog 
for a description that I can completly agree to :-) ) I think I'll write 
a mail to the Mono list.

The same thing can be said about the monodoc documentation. At least the 
Gtk# section did not get updated recently.

Really good documentation on Gtk+ is available on the Gnome website: 
http://library.gnome.org/devel/references. Most of the information can 
be used for Gtk# development as well.
