My experience is similar to yours. A Windows.Forms application that mostly
worked in a previous version of Mono now doesn't work at all with Mono

Check your console.log using the Console application in
/Applications/Utilities. It should give you more information. I'm willing to
bet your program is dying with an unimplemented function exception.

I filed a bug report about an unimplemented function exception for
DefineCursor, but it was closed and I was basically told not to file bug
reports for Mac OS X problems since the Mac is not a priority for the Mono WF

However, seeing that there have been several other people reporting problems
with Mono 1.1.10, I'm starting to think that it's possible Mono 1.1.10 for
the Mac was just packaged wrong. (It's happened before!)

Has *anyone* gotten a Windows Forms or Cocoa# application to work with Mono
