How often does this happen? 

Additional Information:
 I'm using the monodevelop version that is bundled with Unity 3.5 beta
 I'm on MacOSX 10.6.8 (this bug does not appear on Windows 7 64bits)

I should add that this behavior happens when editing uniscript code (sort of javascript for Unity 3D), but not when editing C# code
Comment 3 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-02-06 13:09:49 UTC
If this only happens for JS but not C#, it's likely a problem in Unity's JS language addin, probably the autoformatter.

OK, I finally manage to get rid of this behaviour!

I just unchecked the "Enable on the fly code formatting" box in the
MonoDevelop-Unity menu -> Preferences... -> Text Editor -> Behaviour
