Description Nic Wise 2011-12-10 12:37:58 UTC
Can't be very specific with this, as I only get an error saying "Can't connect to debugger"

2.9.x does this with 5.1.1 (or whatever latest beta is)

2.8.x (latest) does it with 5.1.1, but not with 5.0.3, which works fine.

Happy to provide more info if you tell me how to get it! No stack trace comes with it.

So, with MonoDevelop 2.8.latest and MonoTouch 5.1.1 can you:

* Add "-v -v -v -nofastsim" to mtouch' additional arguments
* Run again (either device or simulator, wherever it happens), and get the output in the iOS device log (for device) and application log (for simulator)
* If it happens on device, switch between usb and wifi debugging to see if it makes a difference.
* Upload MonoDevelop's log file (~/Library/Logs/MonoDevelop-2.8/MonoDevelop.log)

Bother. I reinstalled 5.1.1 and it all works now. With and without the -v -v -v -nofastsim

Do you still want the dump? I swear it wasn't working before.... :)

It's a known bug with latest MD 2.8 + MT 5.0.*, so that's probably where you saw it.
Comment 4 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2011-12-12 17:07:56 UTC
It's a known bug which has been fixed, so I don't need the dump anymore unless you run into the bug again next time you update MD :)
