This seems to be an object getting freed.

Running with GC_DONT_GC=1 doesn't crash.
Comment 2 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2014-03-20 12:46:26 UTC
This is the cause:


We must also call retain on the return value when users override Copy (really any method with the [Release] attribute on its return value).

Actually the test project still crashes.
Comment 5 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2014-03-21 14:34:05 UTC
OK, I believe I managed to finally fix it now.

I have tested this issue with the following builds:
XS 4.2.4(build 32)


I am observing same issue with the latest build and sample also.Hence reopening the issue.
Comment 8 Sebastien Pouliot 2014-03-24 23:17:28 UTC
It was not (then) backported - but only on master (as stated in comment 5).

It is now backported in monotouch-7.2.1-branch 46b2486c6e69811dd4e0c69c61e57fa34b257461

You need (or newer) to get/test this fix.
Comment 9 Tajinder Singh 2014-03-25 02:06:59 UTC
Today I have tested this sample with the following builds:

XS 4.2.4(build 32)

Now it is working fine.Hence marking this issue as verified fixed.
