[Mono-osx] El Capitan: App is terminated on double-click, but runs from terminal (open -a app)

Looks like I might be wrong about the version number for the fix. We build our own 64bit binaries and the guy who did our build
went looking for the sources and saw this change in the git repo:

mono/mono/mini/mini-amd64.c:  https://github.com/mono/mono/commit/061f993b6878585a75fbb4de39b89bf3b4aca348

"Add support for version of pthread_getspecific when launching from Xcode with LLDB attached."

That seems to be the key change, but I'm not sure whether what we built corresponds to, or if we just grafted that change into our older 4.0.2.X sources. 
In our local repository it looks like the latter...

Sorry for the confusion,
