[Mono-osx] How can I run a service or faceless application on a Mac?

I would like to run my windows service code on a Mac OS X.
I would like the C# DotNet 2.x code to behave like a Windows service on a
Mac where it automatically start on reboot and runs in the background (no
forms visible or in dock) and I automatically stops when the computer
reboots or restarts?

As a work-around, I created a Win form project and if the framework is mono
I don't open the form so it is "invisible". However it won't launch
automatically unless I put it in "Login Items" and the application won't
shut down gracefully when you log-off or restart a Mac because of a bug in

If you have any suggestions or links I would be grateful.
