[Mono-winforms-list] Control.Invoke and Exceptions

Hi Guys,

I've been migrating some software over to Mono, which relies heavily
on the Control.Invoke method, and I've come up against a possible
limitation (please, correct me if I'm wrong) in that the Invoke method
doesn't throw an exception which is thrown by the method being

I'm wondering if this is intended behaviour (as I'm getting the
exception thrown on the Windows implementation of .NET), or not,
because I've come up with a small patch that introduces this

I'm not subscribed to the list, so please could you CC me on any responses?
