This was a bug where MD assumed that any MonoTouch version newer than 4.0.4.x supported multi-IP and USB debugging, however later MT releases broke this assumption. It will eb fixed in an upcoming MD release. As a workaround, you could downgrade to MT, for which MD will used the older debugger settings, or upgrade to the 4.1.0 beta which does support multi-IP and USB debugging.
