[MonoDevelop] Debugging Questions

i have following Questions to Debugging in Monodevelop: (I'm using the Trunk
Version of MD and Mono 2.4)

1) Immediate Window and Expression Evaluator: They do not really work at the
moment. Simple statements like property access is working, but method calls
mostly do not work. Example:

StringBuilder builder = new StringBuilder();

builder.AppendLine("hello world"); // works!
builder.ToString(); // works
builder.Append("hello"); // Ambiguous method `Append'; need to use full name

Calling a method of the class of the current debuggin-scope does result in
the following error:

public void Test(StringBuilder builder)


--> Evaluation failed.


Are there plans to integrate code-completion/intelli-sense in the
immediate-window/watch-window/expression window?

2) Debugging: 

- It is not possible to drag and drop the current break-point location
(yellow arrow). Is this a debugger limitation or a Monodevelop limitatation
(the core functionality, not the drag-and drop ;)) ?

- Is it possible to adjust the delay in ms of the tooltip when hovering a
variable with the mouse?
- The Debugger does not break when the call-stack was triggered by the
immediate window or expression window. 

Thanks for your work.
