I was about to commit your patch and wanted to try it out first. I
found two issues:

* After applying your patch MonoDevelop suddenly shows control
characters even though I have disabled it in the preferences
* I tried to change it in Edit/Preferences/Text Editor/Markers and
Rulers but got an exception:

Exception occurred: Object reference not set to an instance of an object

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance
of an object
  at MonoDevelop.SourceEditor.Gui.OptionPanels.MarkersTextEditorPanel+MarkersTextEditorPanelWidget..ctor

() [0x00000] in
  at MonoDevelop.Core.Gui.Dialogs.AbstractOptionPanel.ReceiveDialogMessage
(DialogMessage message) [0x00020] in

Could you look at that please?
