[XVS.iOS 3.9] XIB files and BundleResources within iOS Class Libraries where assembly name does not match project name cause "Cannot copy ... as the source file doesn't exist"
Regression status: regression between XVS 3.8.150 (10cfd17) + XI 22.214.171.124 (840a925) and XVS 3.9.344 + XI 126.96.36.199
This is a follow-up to bug 26606 for the case where the _assembly name_ of the class library does not match the _project name_ of the class library.
## Steps to reproduce
1. Open the attached test case in Visual Studio. (This is essentially the same test case as for bug 26606, but the assembly name for the "ClassicClassLibrary1" project has been changed.)
2. Ensure Visual Studio is paired with the build host.
3. Build the "ClassicSingleViewUniversal1" app in the "Release|iPhone"
(Note: due to bug 26484 it is mandatory to build the solution from within
Visual Studio rather than on the command line.)
The build process looks for the compiled `.nib` file from the "ClassicClassLibrary1" project in the incorrect location on the build host. The folder location used by the Copy command is "ClassicClassLibrary1Foo" (the assembly name), but the actual folder on the build host is "ClassicClassLibrary1" (the project name).
### Errors from the "Error List" window
For the XIB file:
> Cannot copy /Volumes/Cases/macuser/Library/Caches/Xamarin/mtbs/builds/
> as the source file doesn't exist.
For BundleResource `.png` file:
> Cannot copy
> as the source file doesn't exist.
### The build host _does_ have a copy of the the `.nib` file and the `.png` file, but the folder name does not include "Foo"
> $ find ~/Library/Caches/Xamarin/mtbs/builds/ClassicClassLibrary1/ac2b1df117a4a45438eed4d5a8f39bf0 -name "*.nib" -or -name "*.png"
## Partial workaround
Change "Project properties -> Application -> Assembly name" from "ClassicClassLibrary1Foo" to "ClassicClassLibrary1" for the "ClassicClassLibrary1" project. This stops the problem.
## Results on Xamarin Studio: success
The project builds and deploys successfully on Xamarin Studio 5.7.2 (build 7) on Mac.
