As an attempt to resolve my debugger issues, I upgraded Mono to 2.10.5, but now whenever I try to start MonoDevelop (both 2.6 and 2.5), the app immediately exits with the following console message:

([0x0-0xc10c1].com.ximian.monodevelop[3745]) Exited with exit code: 255

Upon further exploration, I turned up the following log:

FATAL ERROR [2011-09-11 23:40:14Z]: MonoDevelop failed to start. Some of the assemblies required to run MonoDevelop (for example gtk-sharp, gnome-sharp or gtkhtml-sharp) may not be properly installed in the GAC.
System.DllNotFoundException: /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/2.10.5/lib/libgtk-quartz-2.0.0.dylib

I can verify that libgtk-quartz-2.0.0.dylib is where it's expected to be.  Stackoverflow.com has a thread about this problem, but the proposed solution is to fall back to 2.10.4, which isn't viable for us.  Does anybody know of a better solution for this problem?
