[XVS.iOS 3.9 SR3] XIB files and BundleResources within iOS Class Libraries where project name contains "." period characters cause "Cannot copy ... as the source file doesn't exist"
This is closely related to bug 27665, but it is a slightly different problem, and this particular problem only started in Service Release 3, whereas bug 27665 started with the first stable release of XVS 3.9 in January.
## Regression status: REGRESSION between 3.9.483 (WatchKit) and 3.9.523 (Service Release 3)
BAD: Xamarin 3.9.530.0 (77c6c15) + Xamarin.iOS 126.96.36.199 (f5d0c5e)
BAD: Xamarin 3.9.523.0 (d58edc4) + Xamarin.iOS 188.8.131.52 (7e1f69e)
GOOD: Xamarin 3.9.483.0 (978be3d) + Xamarin.iOS 184.108.40.206 (ccfcd59)
## Steps to reproduce
1. Open the attached test case in Visual Studio. (This is just a new template Single View iPhone project and a new template iOS Class Library, with a new template view controller added to the class library.)
2. Ensure Visual Studio is paired with the build host.
3. Build the "UnifiedSingleViewIphone1" app in the "Debug|iPhoneSimulator" configuration.
### Error from the "Error List" window
> Cannot copy
> as the source file doesn't exist.
Note the "." period characters in the project name part of source folder.
### The build host _does_ have a copy of the `nib` file, but the folder name does _not_ contain "." period characters
> $ find ~/Library/Caches/Xamarin/mtbs/builds/UnifiedClassLibraryiOS1/90bd7e9fdce6687ffd55505eb741d04f -name "*.nib"
## Partial temporary workaround
Change "Project properties -> Application -> Assembly name" from "Unified.ClassLibrary.iOS1" to "UnifiedClassLibraryiOS1" for the "Unified.ClassLibrary.iOS1" project. This stops the problem. (Note: this workaround depends on the current BAD behavior of bug 27665 so it could easily stop working if bug 27665 is fixed before this bug.)
## For comparison, an example copy command from a GOOD version (3.9.483)

Note the _absence_ of "." period characters in the project name part of source folder.
