userprefs and usertasks are used by MonoDevelop to store user-created
preferences and tasks that are not actually part of the solution.  For
example, the set of windows open when you close the solution are
stored here so that a developer can continue working where he/she left
off.  These files are very much user-specific and should not be
included in version control.  (I'd recommend using svn:ignore or
.gitignore to make sure they don't get imported.)

pidb files are cached databases for code completion.  I would not
recommend storing them in version control either.

(Note that this is more on-topic on the MonoDevelop mailing list than
the Gtk# one.)
