Screenshot showing issue

When hovering on an item that contains an F# List results in the following being displayed in the tooltip:  

Unknown member 'DebugDisplay,nq' 

This also affects a lot of other F# types.  This issue is visible from the C# binding and the F# binding.  This issue makes the debit environment a bit harder to use from an F# point of view.

The DebuggerDisplay attribute is 


and the class has a "DebugDisplay" property.

I suspect Xamarin Studio is not respecting the "nq" on the DebuggerDisplay attribute - it means "no quotes", i.e. strip quotation marks. See http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/x810d419(v=VS.85).aspx
