Thanks, I've just had a look at the paths in the stack trace are 
while the "-debugsource" package contains paths like 
"/usr/src/debug/mono-x.x.x/mcs/class/corlib/System/Delegate.cs" (which 
makes more sense). I've put a symlink in for the folders, but a couple 
of first tests still aren't working. I'll report back later in case it 
just needs a reboot to refresh a cache that says the files don't exist 
or something.
