[MonoDevelop] StartupHandler

I am trying to create an Addin that runs at startup and am having some problems.

I set breakpoints in each of the methods below, however they don't get hit however my extension does appear in the Addins dialog as being installed and enabled.

Here is my extension:

[assembly: Addin("MyTestExtension")]
namespace MyTestExtension
	class MyTest : CommandHandler
		public MyTest()
			System.Console.WriteLine("MyTest creatd!");
		protected override void Run ()
			System.Console.WriteLine("MyTest ran!!");
			int i = 0;
			i += 3;
			base.Run ();
		protected override void Run (object state)
			int i = 0;
			i += 3;

I also tried using a config file rather than attributes, however get the same result:

<Addin id="MyTestExtension"
	   author="Steven Schermerhorn"
	   copyright="MIT X11"
	   category="IDE extensions"
	<Extension path = "/MonoDevelop/Ide/StartupHandlers">
		<Class class="MyTestExtension.MyTest" />

I am running this against the latest monodevelop. I have attempted using my own build of Mono.Addins so that I can step through what is going on but haven't gotten that far yet.

Can anyone see anything obviously wrong?
