Visual Studio iOS project with two components referenced

. Google Maps
. SQLite.NET


Xamarin Studio 4.0.9 (build 12)


When opening the project in XS (Mac), the project references aren't included. I always have to manually remove the references (from the references node) and download the component. Although the components folder is the same, it does not recognize the newly added components. Seems that the two machines have an independent repository reference and even though the files are there, the components aren't recognized. After downloading, I can finally add the components to the project again.

When doing the reverse, the same happens. Components are unreferenced even though the dll references stick.

Unable to reproduce this with Xamarin Studio 5.9. Please re-open if you can reproduce the bug.

With the Mac's Component cache cleared, I created a new iOS project in Visual Studio and added Google Maps and SQLite.NET components to it. Then pushed the solution to GitHub.

Checking out the project on the Mac with the Components directory already there containing the component assemblies worked OK. Also if the Components directory is not stored in GitHub when the solution is opened in Xamarin Studio the components will be downloaded again and restored.
