As you'll see, I get this exception when I try to use Pixate 1.1 Beta 4, which I built myself using the instructions found at the bottom of the page here: https://github.com/Pixate/Xamarin-Pixate

If I revert back to Developer Preview 5, everything works again. Do you know if this is a MonoTouch bug due to change that Apple made in the RC, or a btouch bug related to an change that Apple made in the RC, or something I am doing?

I do not think it's Xamarin.iOS related since:
* It's an Objective-C (not .NET) exception;
* It works with DP5 (but not with GM)

A small test case that shows the issue (and that we could translate to ObjC to confirm) would be helpful.
