[Gtk-sharp-list] gui refresh problems on Vista

I forgot to mention that my app is running on .Net 3.5 sp1 with 'Gtk# for
.Net 2.12.8', and that when I run the app on the complete
'mono-2.4-gtksharp-2.12.8-win32-6.exe' package, it is NOT having these gui
refresh problems. So it's looking like a problem with the Gtk# for .Net? Is
anyone else seeing this?
