Seems like it doesn't work regardless of invoking via reflection or ref.emit code; calling it's constructor 10,000 times still gave the same result. As Michael said, doing anything with RichTextBox fails when invoked from IronPython, but works fine when invoked without IronPython on the stack (pure C# app, for example). I'm amazed that it fails when *called* from C#, meaning that IronPython is doing something to make statically compiled code fail.

Thanks for looking at this Jimmy. IronPython must be doing something 
really quite impressive here. :-)

All the best,

Michael
