Anyone able to run monodevelop and get window manager adornments? (window title, resizers, ...)

This system is:
	Debian sarge
	kernel 2.6.7

1. monodevelop &
2. xwininfo

Does it say:

  Override Redirect State: yes

If yes: O.R. allows a program to say 'This window shall be immune to
window managers'. Useful for some popups (e.g. menus). Marking an
application window as O.R. is the only reliable way to stop a window
from getting wm decorations (so you can add your own ad hoc
decorations), but is against the ICCCM and might count as a bug.

ICCCM = Inter-Client Communications Conventions Manual
        X11 provides "mechanism, not policy". The ICCCM is a 70-page
	troff document containing quite a bit of the policy that was
	left out of the protocol.

It says no Override Redirect State
