Our MacOSX guru took a bit time and deinstalled few things with 
AppZap... I believe only
Mono4Android and MonoDevelop.
Did reinstall and reboot after each install (just to be sure)...

Now I can open ApiDemo.sln (old solution) w/o problems and it runs...

Guru from above did fresh install of Lion, Xcode, AppleSDK and Monotouch.
I have continued (with heavy fighting with kbd shortcuts, inverse mouse 
scrolling) MonoForAndroid
installation, so it could be I did something wrong. I suspect that I 
tried to install more things
at once so installation just went wrong.

We'll keep You informed.

Found it... Right now I'm on windoze box, so I'll send it tou You ASAP.

I believe this is not neccessary, because right now guys are testing and 
4th-5th solution
opened w/o problems.

But log will be sent to You...

thanks & regards
