           Summary: Mono WinForms propert tab text sizing is not
                    consistant as you click from tab to tab

           Product: Mono: Runtime
           Version: 2.4.x

Screen shot of property tab text as seen on a Mac on Mono

For UI developed on Visual Studio using WinForms, when the binaries are
deployed to a Mac or even Linux systems, the presentation of UI elements
involving text is visually compromised. I have screen shots that I will attach
that show a typically example of the font sizing of property tabs appearing
bold-ish in some instances and not in others. Another example will show the
appearance of the same property dialog as run on Windows with .Net.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Develop WindForms UI in Visual Studio
2.Run the WinForms based application on Mac/Linux with Mono
3.Note significant differences in appearance of UI elements, which make our
software solution look unpolished.

Expected Results:  
Allow Windows .Net applications to appear closer to their intended look when
run on Mono.
