After updating to OS X 10.10 Yosemite, the attached test project crashes with the message: "TestSuperview NSWindow warning: adding an unknown subview: NSView: 0x73b0b80" only when the Linker is enabled.
*Steps to reproduce*
1) Deploy attached project on a Mac running OS X Yosemite, Xcode 6.0. Configure the Linker setting to be "Don't Link"
2) Observe that the project deploys without the crash.
3) Stop the previous deployment and change the linker setting to anything other than "Don't Link"
4) Deploy the application again.
The application deploys successfully without a crash as observed in step 2.
The application crashes with the message in the Overview section.
This behavior does not occur for users running OS X Mavericks and the current stable Xcode version (5.1.1). Logs from Xamarin Studio will be included at a later time.

Amendment to the report: the application *does not crash*. Instead, the error appears in the console output in red.
Apologies for any confusion!
I have try to reproduce this issue on Yosomite machine 10.10 and I am getting error as shown in screencast : http://www.screencast.com/t/DNIx3qdzaXD
Application output : https://gist.github.com/saurabh360/eb14d9274a3b17108239
Is there more information available about an eventual fix regarding this issue?
@Philippe - Is there a reason you are doing:
instead of the standard:
The later makes the sample work for me.
Oh yes! This was apparently the issue, we used Superview for the contenview instead of ContentView. Thanks for the quick reply
Awesome. Sorry for the delay in response.
By the way, you appear to have have a business license for Xamarin.Mac. In the future, feel free to file support tickets at http://support.xamarin.com if you run into problems. We often have much fast turn around time there.
