I'm not aware of this issue. What GTK version where you using? Are you
using the one shipped with Mono, or a trunk or macports built?

Yeah, unfortunately DnD is only partially implemented in the Mac GTK+,
so we can't fix these issues in MD. When I last tried, stetic also
seemed unusably slow - I suspect the checkboard background.

Ok, I'll take a look at including that addin by default. There were
some reports that it was broken - I think the gettext compilation
tools were missing? - and I haven't had time to test. Did you install
the gettext tools on your machine, e.g. via macports?
