What happens if you type Ctrl+L (File -> Lookup URL...) and enter
T:System.IComparable<T>?  Does that work, or does that error?

If it works, something very bizarre is going on, as clicking on a link
should be identical to typing that URL in the Lookup URL dialog.  If it
fails, something is horribly broken in your install, and I'd suggest
clearing out your current install and installing monodoc & doctools
"from scratch".
