I'm a newcomer to C#; I'm a Java developer by day.  I recently tried to port
a colleague's VS C# app over to Mono, and basically ran into this issue as

I have checked out the latest code (as of yesterday) from svn, built it
using   these instructions , and this code sample below gives the same error
as the poster describes.

I put in some checks into the WinForms code; throwing when illegal values
are encountered and dumping the call trace.  I'm still working my way up,
but my unfamiliarity with this code is slowing me down.  I thought I would
post my current findings to see if someone else knows what's going on.

The minimum and maximum vars in ScrollBar.cs are getting set to an invalid
value (thus the orignal exception about 0 begin invalid), and it stems from
the TextBoxBase document instance.

I added a check in TextControl.cs, Document class, viewport_height property
set method to check for a negative number and throw (this top exception is
my code):

Unhandled Exception: System.Exception: viewport_height Value '-2147483645'
be greater than or equal to 0.
