Yeah, that's pretty ugly. MSDN says: "You do not typically inherit from
TextBoxBase. To create your own text control class, inherit from TextBox
or RichTextBox.", but that's not gonna stop people from doing it. :)
I added a default implementation for this in r119502, so it should be
safe to inherit from on Mono now.
