[Mono-osx] Mono Develop not running on Mac OS X Leopard

hi Norbert,
as far as I know, the installation of the bundle isn't suppose to put an
icon for monodevelop anywhere - that is why an application is included on
the install DMG.  After you install the bundle (I believe its a bundle, its
been a week since I last installed...), you can drag that MonoDevelop icon
to you application folder and run - its a simple shell script wrapped in an
application bundle to easily launch monodevelop.

I have not tried VB in monodevelop, but I have seen the problem with
newlines, and it is quite distracting and annoying. I've been meaning to
file a bug report (although I think that this is a mac gtk issue rather than
a monodevelop specific issue), i suppose this is good motivation.

OSX native GTK is still a work in progress, but 2 months ago it was almost
impossible.  Its come a long way in a really short time - don't give up on
mono yet! :)
