### Description

If a signing certificate exists in any location other than My Certificates, the certificate can not be found. This is different behavior than in Xcode, where the certificate is found whether it is in My Certificates or elsewhere in the the certificate store.

### How to Reproduce 

Move certificate from My Certificates to somewhere else and attempt to select the moved certificate for signing and/or build against that cert.

We have updated the way certificates work to match what Xamarin Studio does and this has been resolved as part of that. Marking as resolved for testing/verification.
