Here are a few tips before I get to work.

Start MonoDevelop from a console to capture stacktraces when it crashes.

Remove unneeded add-ins for a faster startup.

Add XML comments (easy as ///) and they start showing up in tool tips.

Add an event handler in the GUI designer, it will add a stub for you.

Rename refactoring can rename the file for you if you so choose.

Double click on an editor tab gives you a very nice open editor with all pads 
away.  Double click again to restore to previous state.

Don't use a space between defines, instead use a comma e.g. VERBOSE,MONO,ETC.

Add //TODO and other task type comments and they show up in the task list. 
Customize it with your own like:  //THINK or //RESEARCH.

Consider subversion integration.  If not convinced, add changelog integration.

In Gtk#, create widgets that inherit Gtk.Bin and they will show up in the 
designer for easy reuse.
