Well i dont know the problem what is, but i did a big test here on my iBook 
G4, with windows forms and still i cannot run a simple MessageBox.
What i did was, format my hard disk, reinstall OSX Tiger, X11, and then the 
latest mono 1.1.10
After that i wrote this:

using System.Drawing;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace testwforms
    public class message
        static void Main()
            MessageBox.Show("Hello World");


Saved as test.cs, and then compiled it as:

    mcs /t:winexe /r:system.drawing.dll /r:system.windows.forms.dll test.cs

Compiled OK... Then i've macpacked it as:

    macpack -a:test.exe -o:. -m:1 -n:filename

And packed ok.

Also, i've aded to /etc/preferences

And then when i try to execute the application, it hungs!!! do nothing!!!

I don't know where this is being developed, but for sure, momo winforms dont 
work on Tiger.

Or there's a bug or something that need to be corrected by hand?
