I build my applications with c# and VS2005 SP1.
When i call Messagebox.Show("Umlaut äöü") it works fine when running in mono on
windows. When i do the same thing on openSuse 11.1 (installed with german
language settings) äöü is replaced with non displayable character.
I had this problem with my winforms to but managed to avoid this problem by
changing the font of my forms from MS Sans Serif to Tahoma. I think its the
same problem with the messagebox but here i can't change font.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a Messagebox calling MessageBox.Show("Umlaut test: äöü");
Actual Results:  
Umlauts are not displayed correct.

Expected Results:  
Umlauts are correct displayed.

I get this result also with Ubuntu 9.10
