I'm not directly answering your question, Jordi is working on that, but I 
wanted to make sure that you are aware that you are using the X11 driver on 
your mac, due to the way you are starting your application? You cannot run 
SWF applications via 'mono <executable>', unless you are intentionally 
trying to use X11 on the Mac.

This message (and the whole thread) explains this, and also points out a 
problem with the 1.1.6 package (unless you're on a G3 you should use 1.1.5 
for now, 1.1.6 is missing something, if you're on a G3 use 1.1.6-4).

However, the Mac driver is ALPHA, and does not support menus yet.
