Thanks Curtis,

removing base.awakeFromNib solved the problem for one 10.5.8 machine but
now it crashes on start up on a different 10.5.8 machine:

Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x00000000c01461e7
Crashed Thread:  0

Looks like somewhere in the AppKit but it's hard to tell. Nothing
recognizable in the crash info... :(

I guess MonoMac cannot be used reliably on 10.5.
