That is right - updating the Debugger Addin will be my job :-)

Generally, I really like the idea of being able to use the mono debugger 
both on linux and windows, however I am afraid that making the mono 
debugger work on windows might be non-trivial.  (but hey, what do I 
know, I am a new guy :-) )

However, maybe there is a walkaround - we could compile the source code 
on windows using mcs as usual, but then do not run it under mono, but 
under the .NET runtime and somehow force the runtime to use mono system 
libraries instead of the MS ones.  The idea is that if there will be any 
problems or differences in the library implementation, the user will see 
them and will be able to debug them.  The only difficult bit is that we 
would not have the pdb files for debugging, but I think that adding mdb 
support to SharpDevelop should be pice of cake.  (Sorry, no VS :-) )
