Removing references and then replacing them by adding NuGet packages does not appear to refresh the assembly resolver cache.
Related bug: https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=22279
This might be a duplicate of bug 22279. The error messages are a little different in this particular test project. The attached test project does not produce the "Compiler crashed with code : 1" error, but I was able to produce that error using a slightly more complicated project from a user.
My only hesitation in marking it as a duplicate is that the problem described in this bug report can be solved by closing and reopening the project in Xamarin Studio.
## Steps to reproduce
1. Open the attached test case in Xamarin Studio and let NuGet restore the packages.
2. Control-click the "Newtonsoft.Json" reference under "Solution Pad -> References -> From Packages".
3. Select "Delete".
4. Control-click the "Newtonsoft.Json" package under "Solution Pad -> Packages".
5. Select "Remove".
6. Control-click the project name in the Solution Pad, and select "Add -> Add Packages"
7. Install the Json.NET NuGet package.
8. Build the project.
The special thing about the attached test case is that the HintPath for the Newtsonosft.Json reference is set to the "portable-net40"  version rather than the "portable-net45" version. Reinstalling the NuGet package at step 7 switches this reference to the default "portable-net45" version.
>  ..\packages\Newtonsoft.Json.6.0.5\lib\portable-net40+sl5+wp80+win8+wpa81\Newtonsoft.Json.dll
The build produces 13 "Error CS0012" errors. Cleaning and rebuilding the project does not stop the errors, but unloading and reloading the project _does_ stop the errors.
> Error CS0012: The type

> reference to assembly `System.Runtime, Version=18.104.22.168,

Close and reopen the project.

Diagnostic MSBuild ouput
xbuild doesn't seem to be expanding the facades.
My guess is that this has something to do with xbuild's internal dependency caches in the ResolveAssemblyReference task.
I'm seeing this bug as well, except that unloading and reloading the project or the solution is not fixing the issue. My .csproj references the portable-net45+wp80+win8+wpa81 version of Newtonsoft.Json.
