I suspect the problem is that the Loader is probably expecting a
formatted image like a jpg or png instead of raw byte data like the
method you have been using.  I probably led you astray pointing you at
PixbufLoader.  You may have to bite the bullet and upgrade your
gtk-sharp and mono to get all the fixes you need to use that Pixbuf
constructor successfully.
