[Mono-list] Remoting a GTK UI

It sounds like a threading issue...  Does the app just hang or do you
get varied results each time you run it?  If it is a threading issue,
you may need to setup a delegate [in the app that has the UI] and invoke
the delegate when you make the call to the UI app...  I am new to
delegates and have only used them a few times when trying to return data
to a UI when calling an Asynchronous Webservice ...  

Is it a small sample app with the remoting piece and the UI piece, if so
you can zip it up e-mail it to me and I can take a look at it and see if
I can get it to run on my machine.

What I'm actually trying to accomplish is:

- computer A (command line app) sends a request for a text field to B -B
pops up a dialog box accepts a line of text and sends it when "OK" is
pressed or sends "" if "Cancel" is pressed.
- the dialog disappears and until next request.

I had some code that seems to work under Linux but it dies under Windows
and someone said it might be the threading.
