I can't test right now, but it looks to me like the compiler's getting
confused by presence of the the Count property and the Count extension
method. I believe it works on 2.0 -- I was intending on bumping the MD
trunk version requirement to Mono 2.0 soon, since this is required for
the debugger anyway.

Patching it in your local copy should be pretty easy. Remove the
"using System.Linq;" and replace
items.Count (item => !string.IsNullOrEmpty (item.Comment));
System.Linq.Enumerable.Count (items, item => !string.IsNullOrEmpty
