[MonoDevelop] New release -- DllNotFound exception for msvcrt

Well msvcrt is a native (Windows-only) runtime library for programs
compiled with MS C/C++ compiler. Seems like someone is p/invoking into
it to use 'free()' so a Mono.Posix.dll.config is needed to redirect it
to call free() on libc.so.

I'm heaving dns-related problems to access the svn repository, so I
can't check it directly, so please post a bug case for mono (not
monodevelop), for it. It may just be a packaging issue, or the config
file may be outdated.
