I think I had a similar problem.
You should define a function which takes only 0 and 1 as values:
def[x_,y_]:=If[x<y && y>-x,1,0];
And now use NIntegrate:

gr10;
NIntegrate[Exp[-x^2-y^2] def[x,y],{x,-gr,0,gr},
{y,-gr,gr},SingularityDepth->6,MaxRecursion->6,MinRecursion->0,
GaussPoints->100]//Timing

You see, I set some options, because it is still fragile!

If somebody has a good solution, I would be interested as well!
