[Mono-winforms-list] problem with sendkeys

First question is the other app an WinForms one, too? Normal Linux
apps won't interact, AFAIK. Even winforms apps may not respond, as I
remember most work was going in the automation through the
Accessibility tools, that has better security underpinnings (allowing
some app to interact as the user in another is a risk that X normally
precludes) for the task.
