This seems to be new to 188.8.131.52 (as I haven't had this problem earlier).
Mac's HSF+ file system can be configured to be either case-sensitive or case-insensitive (but case-preserving), with case-insensitive being the more popular option.
On one of my macs I use case-sensitive file system. After a recent upgrade, MonoDevelop wouldn't start (the dock icon would bounce once or twice and then nothing would happen).
kjkmacpro:src kkowalczyk$ /Applications/MonoDevelop.app/Contents/MacOS/monodevelop Cannot open assembly '/Applications/MonoDevelop.app/Contents/MacOS/lib/monodevelop/bin/monodevelop.exe': No such file or directory.
I renamed MonoDevelop.exe in /Applications/MonoDevelop.app/Contents/MacOS/lib/monodevelop/bin/ to monodevelop.exe and that fixed the problem.
I guess the right fix is to change /Applications/MonoDevelop.app/Contents/MacOS/monodevelop launcher script to use precise name MonoDevelop.exe to refer to the exe, so that it works in case-sensitve file system as well.
fixed in git master, thanks!
