screenshot of error

I am accessing code on a shared drive on my Windows development machine.  When coming back from Xcode into MonoDevelop, I get the error in the title and screenshot attached.  Deleting the .#Home file allows me to continue.  However, I lose all changes I had made in the Xcode designer - very frustrating.  It happens rather frequently.

Can you copy & paste the exception from that dialog into the bug report?
