Usually, when wanting to delete a whole word on Windows, you'd do ctrl+ delete/backspace. MonoDevelop forces you to use alt instead, which is wrong.

I checked the OnKeyPressEvent in TextArea.cs that's the entry point into the editor keyboard chain.

On windows holding ctrl+backspace results in State == None. On OSX/Linux it works like expected. Seems to be a windows/gtk only issue.
