I am aware of Bugzilla but I prefer not to disclose my email address publicly
(I hope Nabble offers more privacy) due to spam concerns.

*Platform*: Windows
*Version*: MonoDevelop, but also the master 3.0.5 apparently.
*Description*: Having a project folder path containing some special
characters, such as "(" and ")" (probably others too), causes include paths
to be rewritten (if originally from a Visual Studio project) with a big
depth till the folder that contain the special characters. Example:

-    <Compile Include="Properties\AssemblyInfo.cs" />
+    <Compile Include="..\..\..\..\..\..\Hello

To reproduce, just create a project which parent folder path contains "(" or

When opening the project on another computer the paths do not match anymore
and files cannot be found.
