I encountered exactly the same problem whilst trying to update from 0.13 to 
0.14. The reason is a somehow corrupt config file in 

Solution (at least in my particular case): Delete all contents of the 
abovementioned directory. MonoDevelop may issue some warning message during 
the next startup, but subsequent launches shoulsd run fine.
