+If there's no translation, gettext() returns the pointer passed in.
+In the mono case, that pointer was generated during marshalling, and
+its contents were already freed. If it's returned as a string, the
+runtime will try to free it again after marshalling it into a string.
+ If it's returned as an intptr, it's not a valid pointer because the
+runtime has already freed it. So, you're stuck passing IntPtrs around
+and comparing them afterwards. :)
