[Mono-winforms-list] NotifyIcon problem

I have seen that Gnome is a bit fickle displaying NotifyIcon, sometimes 
displaying, sometimes not. KDE on the other hand always displays with the 
same app just fine, so I know it's not our X11 code alone that's broken. 
Since there are more pressing bugs to be taken care of this will probably 
have to wait a bit unless a contributor has mercy and spends the time 
debugging Gnome's issues displaying the icon.

Hi all,

I'm having the exact same problem here.
A simple program (for instance, the example cited here [1] with an
.ico on the apps directory) will work fine under windows but not under

The assembly ran is the same, compiled with mcs.

I appreciate any ideas.
