When you get errors like this, could you copy/paste the stacktrace into the bug report from the error dialog?

Comment 4 Chris Hardy [MSFT] 2011-11-10 13:17:48 UTC
Additionally, I have never used this menu item before and I have no idea what it's meant to do... Should it just be removed?
Comment 5 Joseph Hill 2011-11-11 17:38:18 UTC
I agree with Chris. We should remove this menu option.
Comment 6 Lluis Sanchez 2011-11-16 08:55:57 UTC
The command allows debugging an executable for which you don't have a project. I don't see why we should remove it.

this issue has been fixed and validated with MonoDevelop 2.9.1. Now this has been closed from our side.
