Created an attachment (id=385275)
 --> (http://bugzilla.novell.com/attachment.cgi?id=385275)
A short C# program for testing

Description of Problem:
When setting the text of a TextBox control using the Text property to a string
containing unicode characters, the text will be displayed incorrectly.
(Rectangles meaning invalid characters will be displayed instead.). Characters
with ascii values below 128 are displayed correctly.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Compile the short &# program (attachment) (eg. gmcs test01.cs
-out:test01.exe -reference:System.Windows.Forms)
2. Execute the .exe file using mono

Actual Results: When execcuting the compiled program, the following text will
be displayed:

(two rectangles)
(two reactangles)

When the text is copied to an other application:
(probably related to UTF-8 encoding)

Expected Results:
The program should display

How often does this happen? Always

Additional Information: The characters are shown correctly if I execute the
same .exe file on Windows XP using Microsoft .NET.
