A number of MonoDevelop users (including myself) have noted problems with the resgen tool 
(resgen.exe) when trying to port a Visual Studio project to MonoDevelop under Windows.  Since my 
reason for using MonoDevelop is to port my project (C#, Windows Forms) to Linux and possibly MacOS 
X, I thought I would try to see what would happen with MD 2.0 on openSUSE 11.1.  What happens is I 
get essentially the same problem, with an error message like:

ApplicationName = 'resgen2', compile line = '/....... etc.

Am I missing something here? or is this a problem for which I will have to wait for a later release.

FWIW, the Visual Studio compiled executable will actually run on openSUSE under Mono, but there are 
a few rough edges that I have to iron-out.
