Does anyone actually find MonoDevelop usable on OS X? I desperately 
*want* to use it, but on the several machines I've tried it on (all 
10.5) it starts new projects with several lines 'squashed together' and 
new lines also get squashed into them making it impossible to edit files.

For me the repro steps are:

1. Open MonoDevelop
2. Create a new C# console application
3. look at lines 7 and 8 which are squashed together and try adding new 

This is so fundamental (and reproducible) that I just assumed 
MonoDevelop wasn't in a usable state yet.
