Did you see these posts?
Scroll down to "step-by-step" and also  --disable-bcl-opt

I know this is for Xamarin Studio on mac (or linux/unix)...  And also, I've only had mixed success in stepping / debugging mono sources this way, but maybe you have access to a non-windows machine?  Or maybe you care to build mono with cygwin on windows, and attempt to reproduce this result in Visual Studio?

I know VS has a checkbox, like XS, to enable/disable stepping through assembly sources.  But of course, you can't step through the Microsoft closed source.  ;-)  And you'll probably have to figure out some tricks to make VS debug against the mono assemblies instead of .NET.  This might be easiest using MonoDevelop / XS (even on windows.)  I venture a guess that it's easier to make XS debug against mono sources.
