[Mono-list] Marshaling string on Windows returns Garbage??

My code (on Windows) uses CoTaskMemAlloc to allocate the string and strcpy 
it into the buffer.

However, instead of returning "test" it returns eight question marks
"????????" usually when
I see things like this its a ANSI / Unicode problem.  My C++ host app is not
using Unicode.
I tried using the CharSet=Ansi but it made no difference, on Linux I'm using
strdup and the code
works perfectly, any pointers?
