[Mono-dev] unable to run VB.NET or C# applications on OS X

I solved this problem by replacing the code generated by VS. as the call
is done by some internal compiler generated i hade to replace something
in Application.Designer.vb [i think it was in Protected Overrides Sub

you may use a reflector or disassmbler run on your own ap to see, where
you have to change the code because i cannot remember what the change

i convince that the call also is only done if an exception occurs during
form generation - but as there may be NotImplementedExceptions or
something like that, you would maybe like to avoid the call because you
want to see the real problem exception.

the problem is that your modifications may be undone when you modify
application properties and code is auto-generated again.
