Comment 1 Alan McGovern 2011-12-08 11:20:15 UTC
I think this issue was caused by a bad build after the stetic addin nuked part of a gui.stetic file.
Comment 2 Atin 2011-12-29 00:56:08 UTC
We are able to create a new project, please close this issue.

MAC 10.7
Mono Develop 2.8.5 Stable.
Mono Touch 5.0.4 Stable
Mono Framework 2.0.7 Beta
Comment 3 Alan McGovern 2011-12-29 09:28:35 UTC
This was more than likely due to stetic breaking things as I haven't been able to reproduce the issue since I cleaned and rebuilt.
