It's possible that GTK+ is consuming this event and marking it handled
before your code gets a chance to see it.  To remedy this, you have two
options, but this is the cleaner of the two:

Remove the signal binding in MD.  Then override the existing OnShown
event defined by Gtk.Window.  First have your code run, then before the
event returns, make sure you call "base.OnShown()" so that the Window
gets to handle the event too.  This is considered the correct,
object-oriented approach.

The other, less clean option is to add the "[GLib.ConnectBefore]"
attribute to your method, which will instruct the binding to insert your
event handler before the Window object's own handler.  But this would be
an evil, nasty thing to do.  :)
