Does using Copy or paste cause monodevelop to crash, or is it just me? If you have Monodevelop installed, please can you test this, I fount that both shortcuts and from the menus cause it to crash. I seem unable to find information about this on google, though would personally consider this quite a major bug.
And how can UTF-8 characters be displayed in monodevelop and mono programs? Although they output fine in Terminal. It is similar to this post , but none of the solutions seem relevant as 2.4 has now been released.
