 wx.NET?  And how to select which one?).
 If you really need the program to be terminated when an assertion
 fails, create a new TraceListener and override both TraceListener.Fail
 methods to call Environment.Exit.  You can then use the application
 .config file to add this listener to the Debug.Listeners collection.
+------- Additional Comments From matze@braunis.de  2005-01-31 09:25 -------
+Thanks for your in-depth explanations of the issues. It now makes
+sense. However I'd like to reopen this bug and request that the
+default behaviour of the DefaultTraceListener is changed to output on
+the console.
+Simply outputting to the void is VERY unintuitive and unexpected. And
+you very easily miss the MONO_TRACE stuff.
+PS: About GUI libraries, if I'd be the one implmenenting the stuff
+then I'd just use the console by default. The gui libraries like gtk#
+and winforms should be responsible to register their own listener in
+their init functions.
+That would keep dependencies for main mono down. And give the user a
+dialogbox matching the gui library the rest of the application is using.
