Yes, you are right Chris.
I don't care about Monodevelop, the post was about an exception
improperly thrown by mcs instead of detecting a switch duplicate case
error. That's all ...

Anyway, IMHO, I think Monodevelop shouldn't report 'Build successful'
when mcs throws an exception... but I have no interest on further
investigating on that.
