Project using git with MonoDevelop / Windows 7

I have created a project on Visual Web Developer Express 2010 and added it to github.

When I try to build it on MonoDevelop or open the “Version Control” menu I get the following error:

   System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'NGit.Util.FS' threw an exception. ---> System.ArgumentException: Illegal characters in path.

    This is what can happen if your MonoDevelop project is in a Git repository. Windows+Git+MonoDevelop is a lethal combination. To fix this, go into MonoDevelop -> Tools -> Add-in Manager -> Version Control – and then disable Git support.

    It seems like something wrong in your source path Illegal characters in path for ‘NGit.Util.FS’ for MonoDevelop

    Try to move source to the another folder (for test reason let it be C:\Temp) and try to open project again
