[Mono-list] Using System.Drawing.Graphics.FromHwnd without X?

I am running mono on EC2 and using fastcgi-mono-server2 ... mostly everything
works great.  Part of the app uses the PdfSharp library for manipulating

PdfSharp allows for 'drawing' on a PDF page, and calls
System.Drawing.Graphics.FromHwnd(0) as part of that code.  This is failing
with a 'System.NotSupportedException' exception and saying "Could not open
display (X-Server required. Check you DISPLAY environment variable)"

libgdiplus is installed correctly  (I had different errors before I got that
far).  Is there any way around this?
