Hi all,

I also have had this same problem for about a week now. Did not have 
chance to look at it until yesterday. Can anybody compile MonoDevelop 
from svn?

I noticed this in the gtkmozembed-sharp ReadMe:-

This is gtkmozembed-sharp.  To use it, you need two things:

1) A working mozilla build.
    Note, the build *must* use gtk2.  You can do this by adding:
    ac_add_options --enable-default-toolkit=gtk2
    to your .mozconfig file.

    Also note, this needs gtk2.

Not sure whether my Mozilla installed from deb uses GTK2 so was trying 
yesterday to compile Mozilla from source but ran into problems with my 
Pango libraries which I need to resolve.
