[MonoDevelop] assembly references - local copy

I have a project with some assemblies referenced.
They have the property "CopyLocal" set to false, as I don't want them 
to being copied to output directory.
I have encountered some inconsistency with this option.

It is respected during the Build - assemblies are not copied to the
outpu directory.
But it is not respected by the Execute - assemblies are copied to the
output directory prior to program execution.

At first I thought it is a bug, but after looking through code I found
out it seems as intended behaviour.

I would like to ask, what is the reason of such behaviour?
For me it seems as inconsistency - the option "copy local" does not
prevent MD from doing the local copy.
