Okay, so I'm not Norbert ... but I also have been having Issues with 
MonoDevelop not starting up when the app was double-clicked.  No error 
messages appeared or anything.

That said, I followed your instructions and MonoDevelop came up ... but 
as I was writing this e-mail, it vanished, leaving a bunch of error 
messages in its wake:

ERROR [2008-10-27 15:18:28Z]: Could not load Apache mime database

ERROR [2008-10-27 15:18:43Z]: 
Mono.CompilerServices.SymbolWriter.MonoSymbolFileException: Cannot read 
symbol file 


I'm running it on a MacBook Pro with 2GB of RAM, running MacOS 10.4.11.

When you say it "works fine," what did the testing entail?

After typing the above, I killed off the terminal (non-responsive) and 
repeated the commands to run Mono.  When it started running, I got rid 
of the Tip o' the Day, created a new Moonlight project, and switched 
back to my e-mail ... at which point, Mono was gone, and my terminal had 
more error messages for me -- including a warning about being unable to 
find the default local directory for Gtk, among others.

Welcome.  Hope this helps, but if you need me to copy and paste all the 
errors, I can.
