1) Ensure simulator is not running
2) Run and debug an app in monodevelop. This launches the simulator.
3) Once app is running, press the home button to background it.
4) Go back to MonoDevelop and click the 'Stop' button in the "Application Output" pane
5) Now try to debug the app in the simulator again.

You get this error dialog - "The connection with the debugger has been lost. The target application may have exited"
