Thank you. I understood something different from Peter's reply to
jeromy... but he already explained that :-)

I updated System.dll and System.Windows.Forms.dll (in .../lib and
.../mono/gac) from the last daily build. Now I get this error:

was thrown by the type initializer for MessageBoxForm --->
System.Reflection.TargetInvocationException: Exception has been thrown
by the target of an invocation. ---> System.ArgumentException: Invalid
Parameter. A null reference or invalid value was found.
