Are you using a Gtk.ComboBox intentionally? If yes, you won't be able to
set the DataSource property of it, because there is none. The example in
the bugtracker that you found used the ComboBox from
System.Windows.Forms [0], which has nothing to do with Gtk. With Gtk you
either can feed a string[] to the ComboBox, or you create a TreeModel
that is used. This however is beyond the scope of what I can quickly
write here. The documentation for the Gtk combobox is at [1].
