Code contained in a #if / #endif block appears in the editor as a comment. Sometimes, although not always, commenting the #if statement, and then immediately erasing the '//' will restore the code highlighting. Upon closing MonoDevelop and restarting, the code highlighting is once again lost and must be restored using the "comment, erase comment" trick.
This is by design, if the #if evaluates to false.
It's happening even if the #if evaluates true.
Commenting the #if and then immediately removing the comment corrects the behavior, but that needs to be done every time MonoDevelop is started.

This is immediately after loading monodevelop with a saved solution. Note the PIONEER flag is set in the compiler symbols, but the code in the #if block appears as a comment.
Ok, thanks for confirming it's a bug.
NP - thanks for putting out a truly fantastic product.
