[Mono-list] MonoDevelop from linux installer

Hi all,

I have downloaded and installed the lastest monobundle. I have installed it
as root, in /opt/mono-, and also within ~/mono- for myself.

My .bashrc has the following:

export PATH=$PATH:/home/chrisa/mono-

Root has:

export PATH=$PATH:/opt/mono-
export PKG_CONFIG_PATH="$PKG_CONFIG_PATH:/opt/mono-"

I have also copied the desktop links from the installation in my home
directory to my dekstop.

When I start monodevelop from the CLI (as me), it complains about
MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME, so I "export MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME=/usr/bin", then retry. It
opens fine. I can compile c# files. However, the tools option is empty

I then close monodevelop. And reopen it from the command line. It hangs at
the splash screen, with the loading bar full (Loading MonoDevelop Default
Workbench), and the CLI displays:

In <0x007ac> MonoDevelop.SharpDevelopMain:Main (System.String[] args)

However, if I su as root, it runs perfectly fine. I can open monodevelop,
close it, then reopen. No problems. The tools option is still empty though.
When run as root, it also doesn't complain about MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME.

This is getting annoying, as I like to run MD as myself, not root.

Debian Sarge, gcc version 3.3.6 (Debian 1:3.3.6-5). Mono

Any ideas guys?
