Hi all
I'm falling victim to the apostrophe in my name (Trevor D'Arcy-Evans).  When
I try to 'Create Mac Installer' and elect to sign the app bundle,
MonoDevelop generates the following command:

  codesign -v -f -s "3rd Party Mac Developer Application: Trevor
D\'Arcy-Evans" "MyApp.app"

Note the escaping of the apostrophe.  This results in the following error:

  3rd Party Mac Developer Application: Trevor D\'Arcy-Evans: no identity

However, when I run the command in a terminal without escaping the

  codesign -v -f -s "3rd Party Mac Developer Application: Trevor
D'Arcy-Evans" "MyApp.app"

It proceeds without error.

Similar comments also apply to productbuild to create a (signed) install

This would appear to be a bug in MonoDevelop.

Kind regards
Trevor D'Arcy-Evans
