Hi Milton,

this is an old bug in gtk-sharp. See this Bugzilla entry for more information: https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=380675 . All you have to do is place the [STAThread] attribute in front of you main method.

I think that was one of the most difficult bugs in gtk-sharp back then. I spent days tracking the problem down, but was never able to find the reason for this.

Hope this helps,
