I think one of the things most frustrating is the 'getting it going'. I 
have a hard time to get everything in sync. What version of what package 
   should I use, etc. etc. I'd love to get Monodevelop running, but that 
often depends on un-released parts. Or on parts that are only available 
as source/cvs. So I'm always one step behind.
I know this will change. I only hope it is soon.
The other thing indeed is the documantation. In Qt for example, one has 
a full description of all posible calls and there is a step-by-step 
tutorial. I'd love to see one of those for Gtk# as well.
