thank you all for the great work and effort put into the development of the framework.

I have an older issue with VS Pro/Ultimate 2012 and Mono Android, any version, that I haven't reported, until now.
Very often, when I try to debug a solution that has breakpoints defined in the code-behind in Android (on a button click, for example), I have two situations: 

I. VS hangs after outputing "copying application to device ..." and the Android emulator suggests I force the shutdown of the application (waiting for the app to respond takes too long). Afterwards, the cursor of the mouse is stuck on the progress ring, I can't click in VS or do anything but end VS process in task manager and reopen it.

II. Debugger doesn't stop on breakpoints.

Can you investigate, please? 

Thank you, waiting for a resolution,

This looks like a deploy issue, and the way deploy works completely changed for Android in the latest alpha. I'm marking this issue as fixed for internal verification, please reopen if this is still an issue.
