Hi all,

2.4.2 works fine here while 2.6 and 2.8 fails with the following:
bash-3.2$ mono MonoDevelop.exe

I have a fresh install of Mono 2.10.5 (fresh install with cleaning all prior frameworks).
Any help would be appreciated since I'm still a kind of "early adopter" and wouldn't like to forget this platform.

Thank you!
