It is not possible to enter any non-ASCII characters into a textbox with a
keyboard that has mapped keys to non-ASCII characters. For example if I set my
system keyboard to "Germany" (System->Preferences->Keyboard, Layouts tab) and
press the ö key (; on a keyboard with US layout), the o umlaut character should
be inserted. Instead nothing happens, the keypress gets ignored.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Compile and run this code using "gmcs monobug.cs /r:System.Windows.Forms":
using System;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Windows.Forms;

class MainClass
    public static void Main(string[] args)
        var form = new Form();
        var textbox = new TextBox();
        textbox.Location = new Point(10, 10);

2. Switch to system keyboard "Germany"
3. While in the textbox press the key marked with ö (; on a US keyboard)
Actual Results:  
Nothing happens

Expected Results:  
The o umlaut character gets inserted
