[Mono-list] Mono 2.10.5 crashing all the time

Hi, there!

I'm a Mono user since long ago, and suddenly, with the new Mono 2.10.5
version, all my programs have stopped working, and Monodevelop 2.8 does also
crash while trying to run them after compilation.

I've developed some applications using Mono and Gtk#, and they are portable
between Linux and Windows.

For example:

As I said, everything went nuts with the new Mono 2.10.5, and I suppose I
have a configuration problem of some kind. I have installed Pinta and
Tomboy, and they seem to work fine, however.

My configuration is the following one:

Windows 7 Home x64 SP1
Mono 2.10.5
Monodevelop 2.8.1
Gtk# for Windows 2.12.10

If I try to run Colorado using the Mono 2.01.5 Command Prompt, then nothing
happens. I try "mono colorado.exe", and the program exits almost
immediately, without doing anything nor showing an error. If I execute the
program using Windows .NET runtime (i.e. just by typing "colorado") then it
crashes saying that "colorado stopped working, Windows is looking for a

If I try to recompile the application using Monodevelop, using the Mono
runtime, the project appears with the references to atk, gtk gdk and glib in
red, saying that they are not available. If I open the references editor,
then they indeed are not listed (?). If I then try to compile, it complains
about 228 errors, all related to Gtk, etc. 

When using the .NET runtime, it recognizes Gtk and the reamining references,
compiles okay, but it is unable to debug or run the application. The
application crashes while in Gtk.Dialog ctor, so I assume that something
went wrong (when it worked before), a handled exception rose, and then an
unhandled exception ocurred inside Gtk#.

The very same thing happens in Ubuntu Linux 10.11. Any idea?
Thanks in advance,
