Were the bugs you mentioned with Mac OS? If so, try running your application
this way:
MONO_MWF_MAC_FORCE_X11=1 mono yourapp.exe 

You may get better results. It's worth giving a try.

I think GTK# is the most popular and mature alternative to WinForms that
Mono has to offer (although it works better on Linux than on Mac... If Mac
is your primary target, you may want to try Cocoa# or something like that).
How difficult the port will be, I can't say, and other than the size of the
application, it also depends on how nice the original application source
code is (ie: whether business code is mixed with UI code, and so on...).
What some developers do is have an interface for the GUI, then use a
different toolkit depending on the OS (like WinForms on Windows, Cocoa# on
OS X...). But that means duplicated efforts / extra work.

Oh, and to report bugs, see: http://www.mono-project.com/Bugs
Once on bugzilla, pick: "Mono", "Mono: Class Libraries", "Windows.Forms".
