I have just tried it on my old Laptop 32 bit with Fedora 23 and MonoDevelop 5.9.7-1, and it works fine to open a simple solution in Gnome (not Gnome classic).

Can you please try to narrow the problem down even more?
When you create a new c# Console solution, don't add anything, save, close MonoDevelop, open MonoDevelop, open the solution again. That works for me.

Can you find anything in your log files?

Kicking you out of a Gnome session is pretty violent, there should be something in the logs?

What happens if you start MonoDevelop from a terminal? do you get any output there? (hopefully before you get kicked out of the Gnome session)

Thank you very much for your answer. And you're right I'll try to describe it comprehensively.

I reproduce this behavior every time I open MonoDevelop and try to open any solution (from recent solutions etc). The response (logging me out) is absolutely immediate. When I try to create new solution, it happens right after I click to "Create" in "Configure your new project dialog".

I attached the log file and there seems to be a relevant part at the time 16:27:13 with message: "Window manager warning: Buggy client sent a _NET_ACTIVE_WINDOW message with a timestamp of 0 for 0x1600003 (MonoDevelo)"  ...then the session is stopped.

I was thinking if there could be a relation to Unity 3D I experimented some time ago (older version of MonoDevelop is bundled), but I didn't find any connection.

(I also tried to run MonoDevelop from terminal as you suggested but there's no output.)

I tried to reproduce this behavior in the Boxes virtualized F23 with no luck. (Clean install solved it all.) This was definitely something related to my system only. I upgraded OS gradually from Fedora 20 to 23 and I also worked with many mono/monodevelop versions during the time. I think the reason was somewhere out there.

I'm sorry I didn't realize this sooner and for bothering you in this Christmas time :-( Thank for your concern!
