Thank you, thank you! Mono/MonoDevelop should come with these, but if
not, *every* system that deploys Gtk on Windows should use these
binaries. It is a shame that hard work has gone into fixing these
bugs, but they haven't made their way into all of the places that they

I copied the binaries from:

into my deployed mono\bin directory, and that appears to work with all
testing so far. (If anyone knows of a potential incompatibility please
let us know.)

The most important fix for us was that we can now use the clipboard to
copy text out of our application.


PS - not sure where these suggestions should go, but:

* Gtk download page should not have an incompatible 2.24 as the default.
* There should be a clear delineation between <= 2.22 and >= 2.24.
Mixing these together is a bad idea.
* Mono/MonoDevelop should work to get the latest Gtk bug fixes into the mix
* Else, this should be documented on the Mono/GtkSharp/MonoDevelop pages

We try to be good citizens of using open source, so if there is
something more that we can do, please let me know.
