Unnecessary white spaces added to project *.sln file when updating monodevelop project



Quickest to use SourceTree or some other repo management client, but can also be reproduced manually.

To Reproduce:
1. Create a new project
2. Add any script, save it or click Sync MonoDevelop Project.
3. Commit or make a copy of the project .sln file.
4. Repeat step 2
5. Compare the saved file with the updated .sln file, there should be an additional whitespace before: ‘ GlobalSection(MonoDevelopProperties) = preSolution’ in newer file.
6. Everytime MonoDevelop project is updated an additional whitespace is added.
7. This is not caused by MonoDevelop, changing to Xamarin studio or any other older or newer version of MonoDevelop doesn’t fix this.

    I'm still getting this in 4.5.3f3.

    Not sure if it makes a difference, but the only thing I changed from the default blank project was Version Control Mode: visible meta files and Asset Serialization Mode: force text.
