+Summary: WinForms: A "splash" screen causes mono to fail silently
+Description of Problem:
+  A .NET application that contains a "splash screen" causes Mono to fail 
+to initialize.  No output is produced by Mono even with the debug 
+environment variable set.
+Steps to reproduce the problem:
+1. Use MS Visual studio to make a default WinForm app
+2. Add another form to the project (called Splash)
+3. Add a timer to the splash screen, set the time to active and a time of 
+4. In the "tick" event for the timer, code: "this.Visible = false;"
+5. In the file "Program.cs", add the following lines immediately before 
+the Application.Run line
+            Splash f = new Splash();
+            f.ShowDialog();
+Actual Results:
+  No results - mono fails silently.
+Expected Results:
+ Splash screen should display for 2-seconds, then the main window should 
+be displayed.
+How often does this happen? 
+The behavior is consistent.  When run with .NET 2.0 the splash screen 
+appears.  With Mono, the app fails to initialize.
+Additional Information:
+I have posted the sample code to reproduce this to my web site:
