Reopening so we can look into the compiler bug. 

The line that causes the reported behaviour is:

using MonoTouch.UIKit.NSExtendedStringDrawing;

I have checked this issue with latest builds of master Xamarin.iOS Version: and latest build of cycle 4 Service Release 2  Xamarin.iOS Version:, and still observing the same behaviour. 

As of now I am reopening this issue and please let me know with which build should I check to verify this issue ?
