[MonoDevelop] Recursive dependencies not copied?

Suppose that I have assembly a.dll that uses assembly b.dll. Both are
located in the same directory.

In a different directory I have a project that references a.dll.

When building using visual studio it will automatically copy a.dll and
also b.dll to the output folder. However, when using MonoDevelop only
a.dll is copied, causing run time errors. I can work around this by
adding a direct reference to b.dll also, but this seems unclean since
I'm not using b.dll directly, and it is a deviation from the visual
studio behaviour.

This is with monodevelop 2.0 and .sln and .csproj file formats.

Is this a bug/lacking feature in monodevelop? I were unable to find a
similar bug report. Or am I missing something?
