Yes, I tried with Mono 2.6p1 and the most recent stable Mono 2.4.x.

I'm on Snow Leopard if that makes a difference. I never tried GTK# on
Tiger or Leopard.

You mention gtk+ 2.19 and 2.20. At
http://mono.ximian.com/monobuild/preview/sources-preview/ the GTK#
version is 2.12, but I don't know if that is synced with GTK+ or not.
It could be the case, where gtk-sharp-2.12.9 is the 9th GTK# revision
against GTK+ 2.12, but that's just speculation.

I'm using whatever shipped with the Mono/Mac package whose innards I
have not examined in detail.

Miguel seems to indicate in his message that there are outstanding
patches which should hopefully address these issues. It appears that
GTK# is simply behind GTK+.
