I've upgraded to Xamarin Studio 4.1.11, and my solution no longer builds due to output files that contain brackets in the name. It gives me this error (full paths truncated for brevity):
/.../Microsoft.Common.targets: error : Cannot copy /.../MyFileToCopy %28with brackets%29.txt to /.../bin/Debug/MyFileToCopy (with brackets).txt, as the source file doesn't exist.
This does not happen with Xamarin Studio 4.0.12.

Reproduces the error
We're escaping the same way VS does. Looks like an xbuild bug. Fails with commandline xbuild too.
