public virtual void Control.ControlCollection.Add(Control value)
    if (value != null)
        Form form = value as Form;
        Form owner = this.owner as Form;
        bool flag = (this.owner is MdiClient) || ((owner != null) && owner.IsMdiContainer);
        bool topLevel = value.GetTopLevel();
        bool flag3 = (form != null) && form.IsMdiChild;

casting as a form fails.
