This is a known problem. This was a recent (post 1.1.2 release) cvs HEAD

Someone has to write some auto* configure time code to push a define
into that mcs line so that the proper enum is used. We have to support

The proper check would be that if the mono version is >= then
you define MONO_POSIX_OEE in the compile line for the
MonoDevelop.Base.dll and have:

FilePermissions .....
FileMode .....
