of course. I can run gtk(-sharp) applications including Monodevelop shipped
with mono 1.0.2 just fine.

if I didn't have xserver running I would get the error report that you
kindly put in just recently, for which many thanks! :)

there has to be something specific to X11 environment that SWF is not a
custom to.

this is Xdarwin that I am using currently:

apple:~/mono/cvs/mcs/class/System.Windows.Forms/Samples adyler$ X --version
2004-10-30 12:59:09.481 XDarwin[20538]
XDarwin 1.3.0
Unrecognized option: --version
use: X [:<display>] [option]

if you could perhaps write a small diagnostics tool that would tell you
exactly whats going on in UIX11 driver on my X11 - I would be more than
happy to run it for you and give its output back to you for analyses?
