MonoDevelop uses gtk+, which on osx has a whole array of problems,
especially on multi monitor setups.
I'm looking for a hacker who would like to do some contracting work to find
these bugs and fix them.
(lots of focus issues, causing buttons and many other interface elements to
randomly not work).
it would definitely help to specify the version of GTK that you are using.

Ardour uses GTK+ and we (I, fundamentally) have been actively involved
in the OS X backend. We recently switched to the GTK 2.22 branch, and
the only problem we see at present may be the same as the focus issue
you mention: menus and occasionally buttons that do not get mouse
focus when displayed. I can't guarantee that the fix will come from
me, but I know that one of our commercial partners would really like
to see this fixed, so we do have some motivation to try to address
that one.
<blush> we were on a way too old version, thinking we were on a very recent version</blush>

We do still see some problems, but the experience is 10x better.

We'll try to get repro cases for the remaining problems we've seen from time to time.
