Hi all,

I compile Monodevelop from trunk on OSX, which works very well, and  
lots of congratulations to the MonoDevelop'ers for making such a great  
IDE, with imho a very close to Visual Studio experience, my beloved  
IDE on Windows. Of course, there are still some issues, like the  
following one:

Selecting text in osx is not correct, in that the cursor always is  
slightly off when clicking with the mouse. The farther to the right in  
the line, the more off the cursor is. Could the following warning be  
related to this issue:

Pango-Warning: couldn't load font "Lucida Grade Not-Rotated 14",  
falling back to "Sans Not-Rotated 14", expect ugly output.

When I google for Lucida Grade, it does not give me any results, but  
Lucida Grande does (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lucida_Grande), which  
is apparently a Mac OS specific font. Could this be a typo? And is it  
coming from MonoDevelop, or is it a Pango issue?

Any ideas?
