This may have been a problem with 2.0A6; it seems to work just fine in
2.0B1. Though I'd suggest that importing * from System.Windows.Forms
is not necessarily the best approach (at least in production code),
especially given that it's got over 700 items in its namespace.  Even
when just playing interactively, you risk silently overwriting
previously-defined symbols when you "import *".
