Exemple project

In my application I write a lot of information in the console with Console.WriteLine. Everytime I restart my application, I receive all my log in the console from my previous executions. Now I can't use my console because I must wait 5 minutes each times because it's spamming all the log from the previous executions. This only happens when I start without debugging (ctrl + F5).

The project iPadTest in attachment will show you this problem.

1- Open it with Visual Studio
2- Start without debugging (ctrl + F5)
  You will see in the output window of Visual Studio "debug" the log : "I only write one time this log, so why do I see it many times?"
3- Start again without debugging
  Now you will see two times the last log

Deleting every log located here "~/Library/Logs/Xamarin/MonoTouchVS" seems to clear the log sent to visual studio at every application launch. But it is pretty annoying to do it everytime...

As of the 1.6.x release (not yet publicly released) this issue is fixed. 

The Debug log is cleared on subsequent debug attempts: http://screencast.com/t/2x1KtY34H0Dp

Note: Starting without debugging gives you no output from Console.Writeline, not sure if this is a real difference in the test case or simply an oversight.

Please REOPEN if I have misrepresented the issue, or if you get the 1.6 builds when they are released and your issue has not been fixed.

Today we have checked this issue with following builds :

VS 2013
X.Android 4.10.01073

Now we are getting different logs for every debug session.

Hence closing this issue.
