remote device.  I then use Run|Run with|Custom Command Mono Soft Debugger
with IP set to 172..28.226.57:10000 where the IP address is the address of
the Win 7 box.  Other fields within the Launch Soft Debugger dialog,

mono --debug \
debugger-agent=transport=dt_socket,address=172.226.57:10000 \

within MonoDevelop, but cannot set breakpoints ... they are grayed out.

Clearly I am missing a step to allow MonoDevelop to find the source code,
but a bunch of head scratching and Googling has not gotten me to a
