[Mono-osx] How to hide mono and windows form in Mac Dock

The dock is similar to the task bar on Windows 7, but it shows all programs
that are running, regardless of whether or not they have windows up. So if I
have a running app, but hide all of my Windows, the app is still running and
the icon is still in the Dock. Super annoying.

I'm using GTK# on Mac, so ShowInTaskbar isn't actually a property I can use.
I tried what is supposed to be its equivalent ( SkipTaskbarHint ) but I had
no luck with that either.

Since no one anywhere seems to know how to hide the Dock icon while using a
Mono application, I will probably file this as a bug. However, I see other
bugs that I experience in the list that are nearly two years old and still
filed as "new". Such as this one...


I seems like Mac is pretty far from a high priority platform for Mono. Why
is that?
