International characters are displayed incorrectly in the window title

The same string used to initialize control's Text property, e.g. Button, is
displayed correctly.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compile and run sample code.

Actual Results:  
The text in the window title is garbled.  Warning about mono trying to use
Roman charset for conversion is shown on console.

Expected Results:  
The text in the window title should be correct.

Sample code:

using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Xml;

namespace RussianTitle
    class MainForm : Form
        internal MainForm()
            XmlDocument xml = new XmlDocument();

            this.Text = xml.DocumentElement.InnerText;

    class Program
        public static void Main()
            Application.Run(new MainForm());

// Compile like this: gmcs Program.cs -out:a.exe -r:System.Windows.Forms
