[Mono-dev] Gdk and Cygwin

I am in the unfortunate position of having to run Windows because my company
uses exchange and will not open IMAP or POP so I can read mail from
Thunderbird.  So I run VMWare on Windows with an OpenSuse VM.  I run CygWin
and use SSH to forward the display back to Windows/Cygwin.  It works amazing
well as long as I close things regularly, because there are some memory
leaks somewhere.

I have a dual headed display because having two monitors allows me to spread
my mess which is the point of a big desktop.

Getting to the point:

			Gdk.Screen s = Gdk.Screen.Default;
			if (2 != s.NMonitors)
				Console.Writeline("Where did it go?");

Given the complexity of the scenario, I doubt it is in the Mono layer, but I
figured I would report it here, because I don't belong to any other lists.
The number of monitors is but one...  The size is the whole area.
Maximizing works as expected (stays on one monitor).  I can span across
monitors.  It mostly works, just the number of monitors is wrong.
