[Mono-list] How to use Gdk.FontSelection???

Anyway there MUST be another way to do this, so parsing FontName may
resolv the problem of getting the font selected in a Gtk.FontSelection
object, but it does not solve the problem of SETTING it, and I've found
that setting FontName to, for example, "Arial 10" does NOT change the
default selection ("Sand 10").

Neither of you guys has seen this problem before? Should I use a
different component for selecting fonts rather than Gtk.FontSelection?

Thanks a lot in advance,
