[Mono-dev] Attaching mdb?

Does anyone know the status of attaching to programs in mdb at the  
moment? According to http://www.mono-project.com/Debugger:

"Can attach to existing Mono processes [DONE]"

Well, that doesn't seem to be the case. By default, attaching is not  
allowed at all, when I enable the Martin_Boston_07102008 in the config  
file in mono 2.4 on linux, i can attach to a running mono process, but  
I wasn't able to do any source level debugging. I guess this is  
because the debugger didn't get all the information it needs from mono  
on loading. What are the plans for this?

For us, it would be great to have a workflow where users would just  
have an "Attach/Detach debugger" button, so they can start debugging  
at any time, without restarting Unity. Also, it would solve the little  
problem I described in my previous post.
