[Mono-list] Need help with mono debugger

I am using Monodevelop-1.9.2 (2.0-beta1).  I am running from within the IDE
just a helloWorld

namespace helloMono
	class MainClass
		public static void Main(string[] args)
			Console.WriteLine("Hello World!");

when I try to run the debugger

mdb helloMono.exe

and try 

(mdb) run

I get the following:
Starting program: helloMono.exe 
EXCEPTION: Mono.Debugger.TargetException: Unsupported `mono' executable:
  at Mono.Debugger.Backend.ProcessServant.Initialize
(Mono.Debugger.Backend.SingleSteppingEngine engine,
Mono.Debugger.Backend.Inferior inferior, Boolean is_exec) [0x0021c] in
  at (wrapper remoting-invoke-with-check)

and the message goes on.

This happens for anything I try (I was trying a more complex program - I'd
like to make a C# based XPS reader/writer.  I kept getting bad values in the
IDE, so I tried debugging in a terminal, with no luck)

I have a Gentoo system.  My mdb is also version 2.2  I read somewhere that
this error occurs when the debugger gets a version of something it isn't
expecting, but I am using pretty much the latest everything.  Also (this is
probably for the Monodevelop people) the debugger from within the IDE hangs
the IDE, I have to kill it in another terminal.

Can anyone give me any suggestions?  I'd like to be able to write something,
but if I can't debug, it is kind of an exercise in futility for me.
