Well then it doesn't seem as if there is anything for a Mac GTK# user
such as myself to do re: Mono. In other words, the fixes are already
out there, but they are not applied and shipped with Mono.

on doing a custom build.

If I'm getting something wrong in my interpretation of the situation,
please let me know.
