[Gtk-sharp-list] gtk.Application.Invoke memory leak

I updated the bug with the following information:
This is probably caused by bug #731579 I just opened with mono. It
appears an old bug has re-surfaced: marshalling a DynamicMethod with
--debug leaks memory.
Not sure if we want to keep this bug open since it isn't GTK# specific
but it is still affected.

Also, I noticed that Application.Invoke doesn't seem to use a
threadsafe version of g_timeout_add. Is that correct??? Shouldn't it
be using: gdk_threads_add_timeout(...) or using an explicit lock (...)
statement? Application.Invoke is assumed to be used by multi-threaded
applications so this should be important. If it is a bug, I could open
a separate ticket.

Feedback would be welcome on the two points above.
