Hi Stacey,

Mono's System.Drawing support is in pretty heavy development right now, 
and there have been a lot of changes since the last release -- I'm 
fairly sure the problem you're seeing is fixed in CVS libgdiplus and 
mcs, but getting everything built can be a challenge.  The next mono 
release should have all the bits integrated, though.
