About my test case:

Have you used the MS framework (I used 2.0)? I tested with a binary from the MS
compiler. Do you want my binary?

Or is this exception just a debugger feature, since I tested under the MS
debugger? I will check this...

About your test case:

You are correct: the Tick event gets usually processed by the gui thread in
MONO. But in very rare cases (I found this bug when I displayed this
Debug.Assert() message box, you remember) it is not the gui thread. So this bug
is not stable enough to find it with your test case. Maybe I can rewrite it so
that the bug shows up.

It would be intresting to check the MONO code on how the Tick event is
internally processed and see if it is possible in theory that under strange
circumstances (perhaps when the gui thread is busy) a different thread is
processing the event.
