Hmmm... gtk-sharp demos seem to work -- but since gtk switched to cairo
fonts are wrong(*) in gtk apps which run in wine. Some time ago I could
run gimp in wine (well, it needed the paths to be set correctly and the
exe-plug-ins being removed). This was with gtk-2.6 (without cairo) and
the fonts where okay. 

I also wrote a small scalar-product-benchmark which was similar slow
compared to "native" mono. ;-)

Ciao, Olaf

(*): They are to big. I think I should post a bug report... maybe
tomorrow -
