There is a metadata cache but it's supposed to be updated when the
addins change. You could try deleting it - it's in
~/.config/MonoDevelop/addin-db-001/ on Linux and Mac,
AppData\Roaming\MonoDevelop\addin-db-001 on Windows 7.

That's very off, are you sure there isn't another copy of the dll that
the addin scan in picking up?

Yes, the exe is called "mdrun.exe" for some reason, but the wrapper
scripts on Mac and Linux are called "mdtool". We should probably
rename it to make it consistent for Windows users.

I think it should be "mdtool setup reg-build -v"
