[Mono-osx] MonoDevelop-1.9-3

I have been getting the RegisterProcess error on both my machines (one
PPC 10.4.11 ione intel 10.4.11). In both cases directly running the
MonoDevelop.exe from the terminal works (although I had to export
PKG_CONFIG_PATH to the pkgconfig folder in the Mono.framework to get
MonoDevelop to work correctly and find all the references).

Removing the '-a "monodevelop" ' from the exec command as suggested
below allows me to run MonoDevelop from the application (although I have
added the path to the pkgconfig folder in the framework to the
MD_PKG_CONFIG_PATH definition in the script).

Hope this helps the effort to find a solution!

Try modifying the monodevelop bash script to not have "exec -a
MonoDevelop" (assuming it's there).

I don't know what exactly causes it, but I've seen use of "exec -a"
cause RegisterProcess errors on many 10.4 machines.

I haven't had a chance to try out this latest version of MD on my Mac
yet, so it could be something else entirely.
