Full version info from the about box, please - there are multiple builds of Mono 2.10.9 package with different GTK+ versions.
However, this sounds like a text editor bug. Can you repro with MD 2.8.x on the same Mono?
I've worked the whole day with the mac version and couldn't repro it.
It happened to me quite a few times last night, while hacking on a MonoTouch project. Full version info:

Alan, I had it happen once with 2.10.9_10 - so there's some improvement but it's still there.
More traces are in #4651.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 4651 ***
These bugs are completely separate. The focus issue can appear dozens and dozens of times with no crash. The crash in 4651 is an issue we are trying to track down but as of yet have no idea what is causing it.
When this happens, are there any gdk warnings in the MD logs?
I've been seeing this a bit. It looks like the code completion window is taking a grab and not releasing it in some cases. Sometimes when the code completion window pops up again after this bug occurs, it still has some kind of grab, because moving the mouse over it causes it to scroll as if it were dragging.
(In reply to comment #12)
> When this happens, are there any gdk warnings in the MD logs?
none for me
This appears to only happen since newresolver. The relevant change appears to be that the code completion window is *hidden*, not *destroyed*. This is more efficient as it doesn't have to be recreated, so makes code completion faster.
My current theory is that the GTK window takes a grab when shown and doesn't always correctly release it when hidden. This then - in some circumstances - triggers bug 4651.
For now, we changed the code completion code to destroy the window.

Screen dump 1: before deletion
I don't know if the following is the same bug (or related to Bug 4684 which may or may not actually be a dupe of this one) but I'm hoping this will be useful.
MD 2.9.5 alpha
Scenario: had typed 'var main = DihMemberIds' (the rest of the line was going to make it 'var main = DihMemberIds(0);' or something like that). Decided I would call the variable 'all' instead of 'main', so ctrl-lefted to the start of 'main' and typed 'all'.
State of editor (just the relevant bit shown, for confidentiality) shown in 'pre-del.png'.
Then I hit Ctrl-Delete to delete 'main'. Nothing happened, then after one second, the 'm' of main turned to whitespace, with the rest unchanged (i.e. 'main' changed to ' ain'). I'll attach this in the next attachment.
Then, if I click the mouse somewhere else (even in another app on a different screen), the rest of the 'Ctrl-Delete' word deletion actually takes place. (See third attachment) (Clicking a key like 'End' also makes it happen.)
It seems like there are repaint triggers missing or blocked for the editor redrawing.
This behaviour occurred over and over if I did the same thing to the same line, but doesn't happen if I do it elsewhere. (And completing the line of code with '(0);' so that it is syntactically correct -- red squiggle gone and compiles -- doesn't stop the same thing happening either.)
As I said, not sure if this is the same bug or related.

I have tried a small test where a popup was shown/hidden every 50 milliseconds and on every key press. The popup contains an entry which grabbed focus when shown. This didn't trigger anything special, so I guess I am still missing a bit of the behavior in MonoDevelop that triggers the crashes ...
MD alpha went to 3.0.0 beta yesterday (but the auto-updater didn't work, as usual) so I'll monitor today (now = Monday morning) how 3.0.0 beta behaves.
Mike Krüger: When it happens I'll try to shut everything else down that I can without disrupting my system too much (i.e. close all other open apps at least). I don't see this happening in any other app, though.

How is the auto-updater not working? Where does it stop?
Got the same behaviour (ctrl-delete delayed reaction) with MD 3.0.0 beta. Shut down every other application and tried again: same result (repeatable).
WAIT: On a hunch I undocked the machine from the docking station. The problem went away. Re-docking, the problem has not immediately returned (for that same line of text I was undoing and retrying).
OK, that throws attention on the docked configuration.
The monitor configuration is as follows: laptop (1600 x 900) on the right, external monitor (1080 x 1920, Portrait) on the left. Laptop is the primary screen (has the taskbar). (I'll attach a photo of the layout and a screendump of the display properties window shortly.)
Since I've been running MD on Windows (from Sep 2011, stable version until the last week), when I launch MD the blue splash screen shows in the middle of the primary (laptop) display, but MD itself fires up on the secondary (external) display. As I use MD in Landscape orientation, I have to manually drag it across from the external monitor to the laptop monitor, every time. (MD doesn't remember this setting, unfortunately.)
I have noticed recently that sometimes the beige pop-up suggestion box appears to the left of the laptop monitor, i.e. on the external monitor. That's nice (keeps it out of the way) but I don't think MD ever used to go onto another monitor.
I'm wondering whether MD's repainting is getting confused when the display real estate isn't a simple single rectangular display?
@Duncan Mak: It told me of the update, downloaded it, then said it was going to update and restart MD. When it restarted, MD was still 2.9.5 (splash screen said so, as did About). I went back into Help / Check for Updates and it claimed to be up to date.
Easiest solution is just to go back to the MD web page and download the installer and install it, which I did. Splash screen and About now both say 3.0.0.
I think the auto-updater might have worked a couple of times in the past eight months, but the other times required this reinstall. Installer seems to clean up old versions nicely. (Sometimes I explicitly uninstall first, but I'm wary of losing settings.)

@Duncan Mak: Further information: when I fired up MD this evening, About box confirmed 3.0.0. I went into "Check for Updates" and it started downloading 2.9.5!
I guess this makes some (perverted) sense if 3.0.0 is actually beta (as stated on the website) and 2.9.5 is the latest alpha that the auto-updater knows about (it still says it is on the Alpha channel) ... but then again 2.9.5 alpha itself tried to download 3.0.0 ... (this is getting murky!).
Right now I've paused the download and unchecked the "Check automatically" box.
I've found that the problem occurred again in undocked mode. I even rebooted the machine (so it didn't have any immediate 'memory' of being docked) and it still occurs, with just the laptop screen.
John, can we please keep this on topic? This bug is specific to grab issues on the Mac caused by the code completion window. Your Windows redraw bug is bug 4684, and if you're having issues with the updater could you please open a new bug for that?
Mike, apologies. I thought it'd been marked as a duplicate. The updater was in answer to a question.
Yes, sorry for the confusion - Mike Krüger incorrectly marked it as a duplicate, but it's a different issue. I reopened it so it's separate again. We do want more information on your bug, we just want to be able to keep track of what's what :)
No worries, mate. Just move anything out of place to the right bug. This morning 3.0 stable is out (internal v3.0.1) so I'll investigate using that.
closing - should be fixed.
