Cannot reference EXE

Xamarin Studio will not allow an iOS Unit Test project cannot reference an iOS application project. See attached screenshot.

Steps to duplication:

1. Create an new iOS project (Universal or iPad or iPhone)
2. Add an iOS Unit Test project to the solution
3. Edit the references for the iOS Unit Test project, and try to add a reference to the iOS project.

NOTE: Visual Studio does allow an EXE to reference another EXE. You can edit the solution in Visual Studio and set the reference. When you open the solution in Xamarin Studio the iOS test projects run as normal.
