 When I run this code on MS.NET Framework, clicking the buttons correctly
 switches the forms. If I run it on Mono BringToFront has no effect.
+------- Additional Comments From alex.olk at googlemail.com  2006-07-20 15:26 -------
+Some comments:
+The first problem is that Control.BringToFront only updates the zorder
+if parent != null. In the example above none of the forms have a
+parent "control".
+So if parent == null it should call the driver with:
+XplatUI.SetZOrder(Handle, IntPtr.Zero, true, false);
+The second problem (X only) seems to be that XRaiseWindow only works
+when the WM_CLIENT_LEADER property is set correctly.
+See http://tronche.com/gui/x/icccm/sec-5.html#s-5.1
+(Correct me if I'm wrong here)
