Description of Problem:
GUI widgets do not display after subsequent loads of "Designer" view.
Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Create a new solution (Gtk# 2.0 Project)
2. Open MainWindow.cs
3. Click "Designer" button and notice that the "MainWindow" widget displays as usual
4. Click "Source" button
5. Click "Designer" button and notice that the "MainWindow" widget no longer displays
How often does this happen?
This happens every time I test it.

This bug currently renders monodevelop completly unusable for mono + GTK sharp deveploment.
*** Bug 11528 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
As a work-around, switching the menu 'View' to 'Solution' from 'Designer' or vice versa usually allows you to get the designer tab to show the widget again (until the next switch to actions/source).
I have tried this issue and able to reproduce this issue at my end.
I have followed the steps given in the bug description.
