"Mono 2.0 contains a much better implementation of DataGridView. There
are still some missing features, such as VirtualMode, which will be
addressed in future Mono versions."

Looks like if you need VirtualMode right now, you'll need to help with
the implementation.  Others on this list might have better advice for
how to address your current needs.
