[MonoDevelop] MonoDevelop 2.8 “Show Completion Window” does not work reliably any more.

I am running MonoDevelop 2.8 on Lion.

Today code-completion suddenly stopped working. After a while I found out it
simply does not work reliably any more.

When I type a dot, usually the available methods for the object appear, but
most of the time that doesn't happen any more. But when I type the object
name at the beginning of a line, code completion works again for a minute or


string s = "Hello world."

string t = s.

At that point the completion window should appear but doesn't. However, when
instead of string t = s.etc. I start a line with "s." the code completion
window appears.

string s = "Whatever"


When I press the keyboard shortcut (ctrl-space) for code completion, I
notice that the edit menu turns blue for a second, so apparently the actual
command is received by MonoDevelop but doesn't do anything.

I updated MonoDevelop from 2.8.6 (I think) to 2.8.8 but the behaviour did
not change. It wasn't like that a few days ago, it only started happening

Any ideas?
