Certain settings require a restart to take effect, but there is no notification of this fact.

EG: Use MSBuild/Xbuild

Changing the SDK location (for MonoTouch) requires a restart. From: http://stackoverflow.com/q/10318825/220643

@poupou: Tried as you suggested, and this worked. Once the SDK Location setting (pointed to the new location of Xcode.app) was accepted, I quit MonoDevelop and started it again. Checked the setting under preferences, and the newly defined path was present. Compiled my MonoTouch app and all worked without a hitch. Suggestion for the MD folks to reduce confusion: It would be helpful for either "restart" instructions to be given to the user upon changing such settings, or the preferences to be saved without a "restart". – Immo Des

"Use MSBuild/Xbuild" and msbuild verbosity settings no longer require a restart.

MonoTouch SDK location never required a restart, if it's broken please file a specific bug.
