What do you mean by "shaded out"? Is it the entire designer, or just
the widgets?
Can you give me screenshots and/or command-line output from MonoDevelop?

The ASP.NET designer is hosted out-of-process, so if it crashes it
won't take MonoDevelop down as well. It also means that changed
control assemblies can be reloaded. The disadvantage is that it takes
a while to load it up, though I haven't worried too much as it doesn't
take long on my machine. I realise that this will be a problem for
slower machines, so I'll eventually change it to have to a single
persistent designer process, or even host it in MD itself using
AppDomains, which will be faster.
