To use the debugger you will need at least Mono 1.2.3

This was a problem because the debugger depended on the "mono" binary
from having debugging symbols.  But we ship "mono" without debugging

A patch was added in 1.2.3 that allows the debugger to debug
applications even when "mono" has been stripped from debugging
