Post Gtk# Image Pixbuf freeze

Using monodevelop v 0.12 gtk-sharp 2.0.
The program is a simple Yahtzee game it freezes when changing the dice images. The big catch to the code below is it works if I use the checkboxes to stop the images from changing for the first roll. After that it will work fine.

protected System.Timers.Timer  mTimer = new System.Timers.Timer();
// load the dice images into an array
DiceArray[0] = Gdk.Pixbuf.LoadFromResource("dice1.png");
DiceArray[1] = Gdk.Pixbuf.LoadFromResource("dice2.png");
DiceArray[2] = Gdk.Pixbuf.LoadFromResource("dice3.png");
DiceArray[3] = Gdk.Pixbuf.LoadFromResource("dice4.png");
DiceArray[4] = Gdk.Pixbuf.LoadFromResource("dice5.png");
DiceArray[5] = Gdk.Pixbuf.LoadFromResource("dice6.png");
when the roll button is pushed it starts the gtk.timer

this.mTimer.Enabled = true;
this.mTimer.AutoReset = true;
this.mTimer.Interval = 1;
this.mTimer.Elapsed += new System.Timers.ElapsedEventHandler(this.mTimer_Tick);
then the image widget is assinged an image from the pixbuf array via a random number

Random random = new Random();
if((lblHold1.State.ToString() != "Active")&& (mTimer.Interval < 34))
    Dice1.Pixbuf  = DiceArray[random.Next(0, 5)];
if((lblHold2.State.ToString() != "Active")&& (mTimer.Interval < 29))
    Dice2.Pixbuf = DiceArray[random.Next(0, 5)];
if((lblHold3.State.ToString() != "Active")&& (mTimer.Interval < 32))
    Dice3.Pixbuf = DiceArray[random.Next(0, 5)];
if((lblHold4.State.ToString() != "Active")&& (mTimer.Interval < 25))
   Dice4.Pixbuf = DiceArray[random.Next(0, 5)];
if((lblHold5.State.ToString() != "Active")&& (mTimer.Interval < 22))
   Dice5.Pixbuf = DiceArray[random.Next(0, 5)];
mTimer.Interval = mTimer.Interval + 1;
if(mTimer.Interval > 35)
   // destroy the timer at the end of the roll cycle


gtk, mono, monodevelop
