[Mono-osx] Scopes all set to "User" but now old .exe.config settings come back?

I saw the same issue and was able to solve it without changing the scope to
'user'.  The source of my problem is that some of my settings had previously
been 'user' scoped.  For this reason the config file located in
~/.local/share/ set them to a default value.  Like all settings they were
also defined in the config file that sits alongside my executable. 
'application' scoped settings should not be defined in multiple locations so
an error was thrown when a "duplicate key" was found. 

In the end I was able to resolve the issue by deleting the config file in
~/.local/share/ and allowing it to be replaced by a file that does not
mention the 'application' scoped settings.
