Description Chris Hardy [MSFT] 2011-09-25 15:35:00 UTC
When I'm debugging monotouch application and use breakpoints, then Monodevelop does not activates on breakpoint stop. So I need to manually change focus to Monodevelop app. This very slows down development...

This is a Mac GTK bug in gtk_window_present, see bug 548.

We should be able to work around it by using MonoMac to request focus if the app isn't active.

We already have a wrapper method whether workarounds can be implemented; MonoDevelop.Ide.Gui.Workbench.Present

Fixed in git master.
