Something caused the app to crash instantly, and the debugger still is trying to connect. Here is the build server output:

If you upgraded to a build that was built between 2am Thursday 7th and 8pm Thursday 7th this is a known regression that has been fixed.

If that is the case could you close this bug?
Comment 2 Alan McGovern 2013-11-14 11:24:39 UTC
Is it ok to close this? I presume that the bug was just the bad build you had as I have not heard back.
Comment 3 Marek Habersack 2013-11-14 15:12:01 UTC
James, reopen if it's still happening.

I have checked this issue with following builds:

Xamarin for VS 1.12.247

Application successfully deployed and launched on iOS Simulator as well as on iOS devices using VS and user can stop debugging after clicking on stop debugging.
