this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
When programmatically populating a toolbar, if you do not explicitly assign a value to the SelectableItemIdentifiers member of NSToolbar, then the application will crash with an ArgumentNullException when 'activating' the command.
As a workaround, allocate an empty string array *WHICH WILL NOT BE GC'd*. (Or, allocate an array that contains the toolbar item identifiers that should be selectable.)
System.ArgumentNullException: Argument cannot be null.
Parameter name: items

Previous comment about empty array not being gc'd is bogus. You just need to explicitly assign a delegate that returns an empty array (or one of your choosing).
I ahve been unable to reproduce this crash so far, so I'm going to go ahead and close it as fixed. If you're still running into issues, could you reopen it and provide a simple repro case?
Apologies on the delay in response. Some of these MonoMac bugs were overlooked when we were scrubbing for items to fix / respond to. Try it with Xamarin.Mac 1.10 (we have a trial now, so you can test it out without purchase) and let me know (email@example.com) if you are running into more issues.
