[Mono-winforms-list] [PATCH] Basic support for AutoComplete in TextBox

For Windows, you have to override ActivateOnShow in your 
AutoCompleteListBox and have it always return false.  Else it steals 
focus from the Textbox's Form and you can't type more than one letter.

Do not Dispose() brushes that you get from the ResPool.  On .net, this 
draws nothing, on winmono, it crashes.

Other than that, it looks pretty good!
