+Product: Mono: Class Libraries
+Version: 1.1
+OS: other
+OS Details: Fedora Core 1

+Summary: Cannot sensibly enter text into Text Box
+Description of Problem:
+Using monobundle-1.1.4 installed on Fedora Core 1.
+I installed it (to /usr/local/monobundle-1.1.4), and set up the MONO_PATH 
+env variable accordingly so mono execution would work.
+I am running a test program I wrote last year when learning Windows Forms 
+with Sharpdevelop on Windows 2000
+Text Box on the mono compilation and execution just does not work. It's 
+ideal for entering palindromes like "lon nol" and "madam im adam" but 
+completely messes up non-palindromes.  Even "palindrome" comes 
+out "emordnilap".  You also have to wait for a window event to even get 
+this drawn.  Surprising, since much more complex controls work.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Create a simple Windows Form program and add one textbox control to the 
+main form, although it may be advisable to have one other control such as  
+a button.
+2. Run it and try and enter text into the text box.
+Actual Results:
+Text entered does not initially appear at all. When clicking on another 
+control, it appears in the text box in a small font, but text reversed.
+Also, if you attempt to alter the text, the cursor is not positioned where 
+it appears, so characters some distance from the displayed cursor actually 
+get changed.
+Expected Results:
+Text entered should appear immediately, with the characters in the order 
+If you try and delete a character next to the cursor, that character and 
+no other should disappear. If inserting characters they should appear next 
+to the cursor.
+How often does this happen? 
+Every time.
