Screencast showing both bad behaviors.
Attached is a screencast, but essentially MonoDevelop's format-as-you type (which seems to run when a statement/block is completed) tends to do some really strange testing of if/else conditions.
What is really bad is that you cannot undo the formatting without undoing what caused the formatting to execute.
In Visual Studio, if you are not happy with the way it auto-formats something, you can simply undo and move on - what you actually typed to trigger the formatting remains as you typed it.
MonoDevelop needs to perform formatting as a separate undoable step, not grouped with the step that triggers formatting.
FWIW, we already fixed two related bugs:
We should probably backport them. Leaving this bug open for the actual formatting issue, anyway.
Works in current 3.0 branch & master.
The undo works in master, but I'm not sure what a backport of that could cause for side effects - that's surely not safe to backport.
