+This has been confirmed to happen with release 1.2 as well. However,
+it may be noteworthy that just running "mono test.exe" from within an
+xterm window works as expected.
+In digging around in the source, I noticed a check for the
+not_supported_MONO_MWF_USE_QUARTZ_BACKEND environment variable when
+creating an XPlatUI implementation. If the variable is not declared,
+then the normal X implementation is instantiated. Exporting the
+environment variable resulted in a NotImplemented exception. 
+Based on a quick reading of the code my guess is that the Quartz
+back-end is not ready in this release. My advice is that while it is
+not implemented, then the state should be detected, and the user
+should be directed to run the assembly from within an xterm window.
