An unmodified MonoDevelop 2.2+ supports debugging Mono 2.6+, with no
additional addins or dependencies. Since MonoDevelop can target
multiple runtimes, I suggest you check that it is targetting your Mono
2.6 and not some older Mono on your system.

I would guess that you have something misinstalled or misconfigured,
though it's hard to guess the problem without more information. I
suggest you read the following pages if you haven't done so already:

There is a commercial product that can do this, Mono Tools for Visual
Studio (http://www.go-mono.com/monotools/)
