That's because Gtk# was originally started as a binding under .NET 1.0,
and .NET 1.0 didn't allow you to provide a calling convention, iirc.

(Or it was due to lack of UnmanagedFunctionPointerAttribute...)

The Gtk# build process has a post-processing step which patches the
assemblies so that things work as expected under .NET.
