[Mono-osx] Gtk# StatusIcon and Events

Alright, I managed to figure out what goes wrong.

In case someone else asks the same question, the answer is: "Yes, the
PopupMenu event works with the StatusIcon under OSX, but
Gtk.Application.Run() must be invoked from the main thread".

I have placed a small example of the issue here:

It seems as though the GTK main loop does not work under OSX, if the
invoking thread is not the main thread. The icon appears, but is
non-responsive and shows the "busy" cursor if hovering above it.

I have not investigated the cause of this problem, but I think I can fix it
for my own purposes, by simply running the Gtk eventloop in the main thread
and then run the WinForms loop in another thread, the oposite of what I am
doing now.

Regards, Kenneth
