I'm using the Reactive Extensions (modified for MonoTouch) found here:

When attempting to create a progress indicator for a text file download using this code:

testButton.TouchUpInside += delegate {

	var client = new WebClient();
	var progress = Observable
		.FromEventPattern<DownloadProgressChangedEventHandler, DownloadProgressChangedEventArgs>(
			h => client.DownloadProgressChanged += h,
			h => client.DownloadProgressChanged -= h)
			.Select(x => x.EventArgs)
	progress.Subscribe(e => 
	                   BeginInvokeOnMainThread(() => 
	                   	testLabel.Text = e.ProgressPercentage + "% Done"
	client.DownloadStringAsync(new Uri("http://my-local-server/800kb-text-file.txt"));

On the first tap, it seems to run fine.  Trying to tap the button a second time hangs the app.  After writing all of this I figured out that if I remove the Throttle() call, it seems to function reliably.

Thanks again for your support!

Can you create a complete test case and/or create a crash report when it hangs.

You can force a crash report by doing this:

* Hold down the On/Off button until "slide to power off" appears.
* Release the On/Off button.
* Hold down the Home button.
* After a few seconds the app will be terminated, and a crash report will be generated (the app's exception code will be 0xdeadfa11).
