Let's say you have a namespace "A" and you have other namespaces which are members (A.B, A.B.D, A.C). In Monodevelop, if you refactor and rename namespace "A" to "A.E" or "Alpha" all member namespaces get overwritten by the new value and are lost (i.e. A.B.D -> Alpha).
1. Create two namespaces and have the second be a member namespace of the first
2. Rename the first namespace
3. The second namespace is now exactly the same as the first
Finally fixed in 6.0
