[Mono-list] ConfigurationErrorsException loading user settings (duplicate key)

I've resolved the issue.  The source of my problem is that some of my
settings had previously been 'user' scoped.  For this reason the config file
located in ~/.local/share/ set them to a default value.  Like all settings
they were also defined in the config file that sits alongside my executable. 
'application' scoped settings should not be defined in multiple locations so
an error was thrown when a "duplicate key" was found.

In the end I was able to resolve the issue by deleting the config file in
~/.local/share/ and allowing it to be replaced by a file that does not
mention the 'application' scoped settings.
