Hi. With last MonoDevelop versions (it started, I guess, in 2.8) I have problems with on the fly code formatting. When enabled, it quite frequently totally messes up fragment of code. It could be not so straightforward to reproduce this, however I had this issue (among others) in my project ELFSharp: https://github.com/konrad-kruczynski/elfsharp, which anyone can try.

That one is already fixed (the code was mixing space & tab formatting, that caused that).
