Since it is rare monodevelop has failed to build from svn, is this 
necessary? It also would use resources we don't really have available.

Sure, how do propose to go about it?  There are some things people 
should look into:
 - use nunit,
 - use dogtail or LDTP (python gui testing things)
 - other methods
 - when to run them (make check, standalone, etc)
 - non-gui vs. gui tests in general (interaction, requires an X server)

Or if you rather take the incremental approach, how about a patch that 
adds a test and lets see what it would look like.
