It looks like you're using the .NET debugger with a Windows Forms app.
It's my understanding that such apps detach from the controlling
terminal, so MD cannot capture the output. Perhaps VS has special
handling for this and MD does not. Could you file a bug report?

You may have more luck viewing output by either changing the project's
output type to a console app, or using the Mono Debugger. To use Mono,
install Mono - it's not included with MD -  then use the "Run->Run
With->Mono Soft Debugger" menu, or change your target runtime in the
Project menu, or change default target runtime in Preferences.
