Hey, that's me, again.

I've been investigating a bug from bugzilla, but found other bug (at least
I think so).
When moving or copying a directory within a project MonoDevelop won't save
moved directories in .csproj.
It saves files but not directories. And I don't think it's a normal

To check this you could create a project with this structure -
Then drag the Folder3 to the Folder1. Now you might close MD and check the
MyClass.cs will be in the project, but not the Folder3.

I tried to fix this: https://github.com/x2bool/monodevelop/compare/bug

I also tried to model Visual Studio's test adapter you suggested earlier,
applying all that to MonoDevelop.
I almost done and will publish results in two or three days.
