Description Neal 2014-09-14 10:34:35 UTC

I'm sorry but I don't have a sample app at this time to show this issue but maybe the error will help determine if this is a MonoTouch bug needing attention.  We take a PDF file from the bundle and interact with it to present data in a spreadsheet type format.  90% of the time it works fine, however, sometimes when accessing the PDF such as a new debug session in the Sim, I get a SIGSEV error as outlined below.  In addition, while I don't have the messages handy there is also intermittent reporting of Obsolete PDF interaction functionality showing in MT stack traces that may need to be updated.  Our min iOS right now is 7.1 for this project, working in all stables as of today.  One of the obsolete methods is GetMediaBox(1) and I can't recall the other, in case that helps point you in the right direction.

Thank you

Native stacktrace:

Got a SIGSEGV while executing native code. This usually indicates
a fatal error in the mono runtime or one of the native libraries 
used by your application.

The method where this appears to start as a problem is:

            public override void Draw(RectangleF rect)

                //Console.WriteLine("LogbookView Draw called (Check to make sure we have a real need)");

                RectangleF mediaRect = page.Document.GetMediaBox(1);

                float Scale = rect.Width / mediaRect.Width;
                CGContext context = UIGraphics.GetCurrentContext();
                // First fill the background with white.

                // Flip the context so that the PDF page is rendered right side up.
                context.TranslateCTM(0.0f, mediaRect.Height * Scale);
                context.ScaleCTM(1.0f, -1.0f);

                // Scale the context so that the PDF page is rendered at the correct size for the zoom level.
                context.ScaleCTM(Scale, Scale);

Could you please provide us the exact test steps you followed. Also now, if you have a sample app that demonstrates this behavior please attach it to bug.

Can you please add the logs from the following places as well?:
