[MonoDevelop] cross platform development issue

I am using monodevelop for the cross platform development of widemargin.

On ubuntu monodevelop automatically adds package hints to the projects file
(only if the file changes in some way)

On windows monodevelop cannot resolve an assembly with a package hint.

This means that each time a commit is made on ubuntu the package hints must
be manually removed from the change. This is time consuming and error
prone. It is not clear to me what the package hint is for, removing it
appears to have no negative impact on either compiling, running
or creating deb packages for widemargin.

Is there a way this behavior can be turned off?

I know I am not the only opensource project facing this problem as I have
found a commit in banshee where they removed the package hints to enable it
to work on windows.
