[MonoDevelop] References and the GAC

(I originally posted a similar question on the mono-list but I believe it
is more appropriately posted here.)

I'm was trying to use the Npgsql assembly but it does not appear in the
Edit References>GAC tab.

I found that there was no Npgsql.dll on my system so I downloaded
Npgsql0.7beta3-bin.tar.gz and uncompressed it.

Then as root I did the following:

[root@localhost mono]# gacutil -i Npgsql.dll
Npgsql installed into the gac (/usr/lib/mono/gac)

[root@localhost mono]# gacutil -l
The following assemblies are installed into the GAC:
Npgsql, Version=1.0.5000.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=5d8b90d52f46fda7
Number of items = 44

At this point I open MonoDevelop, clicked on the References Folder in a
project and choose Edit References.  But when viewing the list in the GAC
tab I do not see an entry for Npgsql.   (But, as you can see above it
appears in the gacutil -l .)

How do I get Npgsql to appear in GAC tab?

(Idid all of this as root in order to eliminate any permission problems.)
