As a matter of fact, that's precisely the point of that example. There's
several examples following it which fix the problem (though I have
problems with those, too). I would imagine that it's a problem with my
setup if it's not failing in the proper way, yes? I'm trying to learn
WinForms with Mono, and it's difficult if I don't see the same thing the
author describes.

Yep, that's mentioned as well.
