[MonoDevelop] Sanity check for ~/.config not being a file.

Hot on the heels of the 'check hostname resolves' check going in, here's
a small patch to make sure ~/.config isn't a file when MD is starting.
Anybody who's backed up a kernel config to their homedir is apt to have
this problem, and get a stupid trace when MD tries to make the dir
