After installing the MonoTouch package, the files in /Developer/MonoTouch and /Applications/Xamarin.iOS\ Build\ Host.app are owned by uid 501 (which isn't even the uid of the account I'm using). They _should_ be owned by root.

Missing a postflight step?

Today, we have checked this issue with:

ML 10.8.4
XS 4.2.4(build 32)

I have typed following command in terminal:
cd /Developer
ls -ln 

and observed that we are getting '501' for Monotouch. Here is the screencast for the same: http://screencast.com/t/ba2bkH4FPwzV
