[Mono-list] Why isnt this exception caught? What am I doing wrong

I have written some code to save a file to the fs. See code below.

	string fullpath = System.IO.Path.Combine(base_directory,filename);
	StreamWriter sw = new StreamWriter(fullpath);		
	catch (Exception ex)

All works fine when the path is correct but when wrong the catch is ignored
and I get

Exception in Gtk# callback delegate
  Note: Applications can use GLib.ExceptionManager.UnhandledException to
handle the exception.
System.IO.DirectoryNotFoundException: Directory not found

So please can someone tell me what is happening and why the catch above is
being ignored. I am using mono 1.91,
gtk-sharp2 2.12.0-2ububtu3 and using monodevelop 2.0alpha as my ide.
