Simple to reproduce: NSMenu.Submenu simply does not allow a null value to be assigned, where the native NSMenu has no such restriction. It throws this:
System.ArgumentNullException: Argument cannot be null.
Parameter name: value
at at MonoMac.AppKit.NSMenuItem.set_Submenu (MonoMac.AppKit.NSMenu) <IL 0x00016, 0x00077>
I'm working around the problem like this:
MonoMac.ObjCRuntime.Messaging.void_objc_msgSend_IntPtr(menuItem.Handle, MonoMac.ObjCRuntime.Selector.GetHandle("setSubmenu:"), IntPtr.Zero);
Which works as an interim fix, but it would be better if the wrapper was updated.
Xamarin Studio 4.2.1 (build 1)
Mac OS X 10.9
Sorry, I meant NSMenuItem.Submenu does not allow null values to be assigned (NSMenu has no submenu property).
Fixed on master / 714ee6b4dd94e029de6d09a83a79c56609b6e391
