[Mono-osx] GTK#, widget focus issue

Hello. I'm not sure if this should be sent here or in the GTK# mailing

I installed mono 2.8 on a Mac OS 10.6 system and I tried to use an
application I've written with GTK#.
The problem is that widgets in it often don't react to the mouse, either to
clicks or the pointer passing over them.
To describe it better, the main window has a vbox with a toolbar on the top
and a notebook below it. Clicking on toolbar icons is supposed to open new
tabs in the notebook and this works fine. However, once this has happened,
the toolbar doesn't react to the mouse at all. The buttons don't even light
up when the cursor passes over them.
In the notebook itself, changing tabs works fine but clicking on buttons in
each page works only occasionally. It seems like the notebook has focus and
GTK# is reluctant to give focus to anything else or refuses entirely (in the
toolbar's case).

Is this an unresolved issue in the Mac version of GTK#, or is there some
configuration I can/should change?
It's the same whether I use X11 or not.
