[Gtk-sharp-list] Windows and Dialogs hang after WebClient.DownloadFileAsync

Hey all,

I'm in the process of writing my first GTK# application (along side a .NET
and MonoMac app using the same library file) and came across some strange
behavior. Just wondering if anyone has seen this before - as my searches
aren't turning up anything useful.

Basically - it seems that any window that is shown from the
DownloadFileCompleted event from a WebClient object just hangs after
showing. I've managed to narrow it down to a simple test application which
is attached.

I've tried waiting and calling from a different event - but it seems that if
the DownloadFileCompleted event is on the stack it will cause the issue.

Thanks for the help, still looking into what else I can think of that could
be causing this (along with a pain of a bug with MonoMac and NSPath objects
