Not sure, this sounds like a bug. MonoMac was changed to reference the
4.0 framework in Feb 2011 (IIRC), and so the MD project type enforces
that framework, but it was supposed to upgrade existing projects
automatically. Please file a bug report on
http://bugzilla.xamarin.com. You should be able to work around it by
manually editing the csproj file.
