[Mono-osx] WinForms + WebKit + Mac OS X

I'm trying to use WebKit in a C# WinForms application running on Mac OS
X and I have problems.
Currently, I'm able to put WebKit control on System.Windows.Forms.Form
instance, but it has rendering problems: the WebKit is overdrawn by the
form background. It might have other event-related issues--not sure
Other approach was to create a native Carbon window using HIWindowCreate
and put WebKit there. This works for WebKit, but not for WinForms
controls: e.g., a Button added to such native window is painted, but
doesn't respond to events (click, etc.)
I _need_ both WinForms controls and WebKit in one window. What I'm
missing and what are the odds that this could be accomplished?
More related details:
The WinForms application is a sample with the only bare Form generated
in Visual Studio.
I'm using WebInitForCarbon() + HIWebViewCreate() to get a raw HIView
pointer. I'm using Monobjc to wrap the native handle into WebView class
and load a simple request--this part works w/o a problem.
Any help and suggestions are very much appreciated. :)
 Preferrably, but any other decent browser engine (like Gecko) will
do the trick.
