On the Mac in XS/MD if I create a project with name MyApp.UI.Touch then the MonoTouch project has an exe name MyAppUITouch

If I do the same in VS, then the generated exe name is invalid - MyApp.UI.Touch

Today we have checked this issue on following builds :

VS 2012
MTVS 1.2.103
Mono 2.10.12

If name of the application contains periods in between it and when we try to debug the application it deploys on device/simulator successfully.

It create .exe file without periods.

Like if name of application is "create.new.test.1" then it create exe with name "createnewtest1.exe" 

Hence changing its status to verified.
