The crashlog OSX gave me

For me the GTK# desifgner seems unusable on OSX atm.

Add a vBox , drop a ComboBoxEntry on it.
Move the ComboBoxEntry to another vBox row, MD crashes (maybe try it two or more times. Sometimes it takes while or a second widget is needed to crash it.

In prior  2.8.6.x versions MD didn't crash, bust freezes with spinning wheel.  Tried it with other widgets, seems to work a bit longer, but then suddenly crash.
Happens on MacBook Pro with OSX 10.6.8 with a 2 monitor setup. Current Mono and GTK#.   No problems on XP with the same MD Version.

Can you try the Mono beta? It has a new GTK+ which fixes many of these issues.
Comment 2 Mikayla Hutchinson [MSFT] 2012-02-08 13:23:14 UTC
Make that Mono 2.10.9, which just went into beta a short while ago.

I Installed Mono 2.10.9 Beta  and now the crashes seem gone ! :) I tested  moving widgets  for a few minutes and it never crashed. Great work ! Thank you !
