[MonoDevelop] Stetic Stability

Hi, I've just started using MonoDevelop on Kubuntu Fiesty (64-bit).
Initially I was using v0.12 from the distribution repositories, but
found it very unstable, so now I've installed v0.15 using debs from
getdeb.net which is slightly better, but very often I find that the
whole IDE just crashes and disappears with no error messages. In none
of the cases have I found the crashes to be immediately reproducible by
doing the same thing - most often it just happens when selecting
something, often in the Stetic GUI designer window but also in the
MonoDevelop GUI itself - sometimes just clicking to position the cursor
when editing code!
So I was wondering whether this kind of instability is typical at the
moment or if I need to start looking at my configuration to try and find
out why this happens? I don't have any such problems with other
applications, but I don't really use any other Gnome applications. Do
you think it's worth me trying to build everything myself from source?
Any advice or comments from people using MonoDevelop with a similar
setup would be much appreciated since I'm quite new to linux and not too
sure where to begin...
