[Mono-winforms-list] OSX TextBox accepts no input?

I'm kind of baffled by this. I can create a Form object and add a TextBox
object to it. I can give the TextBox focus and get a cursor. Nothing I type
while the TextBox has focus shows up. gmcs and mono both report version 1.9.
Code follows:

using System.Windows.Forms;
using System.Drawing;

public class MyC : Form
    public MyC()
        Text = "Simple";
        Size = new Size(250, 200);
        TextBox tb = new TextBox();
        tb.Parent = this;
        tb.Location = new Point(5,5);
        tb.Size = new Size(200,180);
        tb.Multiline = true;
        tb.ScrollBars = ScrollBars.Vertical;
        tb.AcceptsReturn = true;
        tb.AcceptsTab = true;
        tb.WordWrap = false;


    static public void Main()
       Application.Run(new MyC());

I'm compiling thusly:
gmcs -r:System.Windows.Forms.dll -r:System.Drawing.dll MyC.cs

If there's something wrong with my code, I can't find it. Is this just a
limitation of mono on OS X?
