Mainly it's the menu and monodoc-base triggers that cause the problem. Recently monodoc base has become a major pain. It keeps saying there are a bunch of errors, and uses up 100+ CPU% and makes it impossible to do a thing. I've had to force it to stop so many times now.

I don't want to lose monodevelop, but will a reinstall work to stop the hell? I got kinda mad and went ahead and did it. Gonna see how it goes, but so far, it's improved.

Could you give an example of the errors from monodoc-base? – ajmitch Nov 9 '10 at 1:54
I just removed it lol. I'll have to wait till it reinstalls to launch epiphany and get the link to the error back. – RolandiXor Nov 9 '10 at 2:01

I fixed it O.o. Removing monodoc-everything, and reinstalling that + monodevelop worked. Even the post-install trigger menu is behaving. Looks like I'm going to start hating on mono.
