Shows issue in ide

IDE does not allow adding reference to exe project.

Create exe project.
Create unit test project.
In unit test project, edit references and attempt to add reference to exe project.
(see attachment)

This is a requirement for unit testing code within an executable project, and is a valid scenario in other situations.

Did some more messing around.  This seems to only be a problem if the unit test project is an iOS NUnit project, and 'exe' is an iOS app.

Maybe a limitation of the iOs project model ?
