[Mono-winforms-list] WinForms for OsX excessive delays in responding

Honestly, at the moment, I don't think WinForms on Mac can be used
professionally... unless your project has hacks here and there to work
around issues. WinForms on Mac is just too buggy (my app won't run because
disabled controls still fire events...). But you could also use the X11
version [1], which should work better. Actually, you could try that to see
if that solves your problem.

[1] Forced through parameter, like: MONO_MWF_MAC_FORCE_X11=1 mono myapp.exe
But requires X11 server installed.
