What about SDLDotNet? It's the only C# GUI I've found that does what I want 
it to do, as opposed to doing what it wants to do. The application programmer 
has total control with SDL, whereas a purely event driven GUI such as Gtk# 
only provides callbacks for user events--the main control loop is the GUI 
event loop, not the programmer's application. (Threads? What threads? Haven't 
seen them yet in Gtk#. If you know where they're hidden, please point me in 
that direction.)

And Qtsharp? Forget it. Qtsharp compiles ok on my machine, but every app I 
build with it crashes. If it crashes on my machine, it's likely to crash on 
other people's machines, even if it doesn't on some. Not portable.
