 Summary: Type.GetType("Gtk.Window,gtk-sharp") should not work with .net Framework's GAC
 On the MS runtime, if an assembly is installed in the GAC, you must provide
 a fully qualified assembly name (e.g.  name,key,culture) for the lookup to
 succeed.  Mono currently allows partial name lookups for GAC'd assemblies.

+Have to be careful on this is addressed. There is another bug, which 
+I will submit separately, where it isn't allowing the loading of a 
+type of the form 'Gtk.Window, gtk-sharp' when the assembly gtk-sharp 
+is a referenced assembly of the currently running app/assembly. MS's 
+CLR will allow the loading of a partially qualified name if the 
+assembly component of the type is referenced in the running instance 
+of the application (probably application boundary based).
+For an application/framework I'm trying to port to mono, I'm finding 
+this a major blocking entity.
