This is a minor cosmetic issue, but details matter.

Basically, Mono turns disabled buttons into grayscale mode, while .NET does
something a bit more subtle and greys them out, apparently. For example, white
stays white with Mono, while it gets darker with .NET.

I think Mono should mimick .NET there, for 2 reasons: consistency, behaving as
closely to .NET as possible, and also, because the way it's done in .NET looks
better, making it clearer that the button is disabled (especially if the button
is grayish in the first place, like a trash can).

See the testcase. It has 2 ToolStrips, each with 3 buttons with icon.
The second strip is the same as the first one, except the buttons are disabled.

Reproducible: Always
