I find Monodevelop to be pretty good.

It can be;  occasionally code completion stops working in the editor and
when you build your project it frequently doesn't catch the messages so
you have to look at the Build Output tab rather than the errors/warnings
tab and navigate to the errors yourself.  Those are the two things I've
noticed.  Otherwise recent versions are very stable;  it is certainly
the best solution if you don't run Windows.  The included Stetic
designer for Gtk# is quite nice as well.

Does SharpDevelop have much in the way of Gtk# support?
