i don't have time to make a test case now, but i think there is a little bug with the image manager stuff (think thats your department).  If you create a universal app and add a splash image for the iPad and then later switch it to an iPhone only app and remove that iPad image, then rebuild, the iPad image will still be in the app and used

this actually wasn't on simulator it was with a .ipa

1) Create a monotouch application
2) Add Default.png, Default@2x.png, Default-Portrait.png etc to the project.
3) Build and execute it. The launch images are used in the simulator
4) Delete these files from the project and filesystem by right clicking and choosing 'Remove' and then 'Delete'.
5) Build and execute the project. The launch images are still used in the simulator and they also still exist in the 'bin' directory. We should really be deleting these from the build directory once they are removed from the project when we rebuild.

Temporary workaround: Clean the solution and then build it.
Comment 3 Miguel de Icaza [MSFT] 2012-01-13 19:02:54 UTC
Perhaps we should sync changes, compare the directory trees?

Otherwise removing binaries from existing builds would be a matter of scanning every possible configuration and deleting the files from there.

Incremental cleaning is nontrivial, but we'll get it almost "for free" when we switch to xbuild.

bug #12902 is basically the same problem, except it's about the exe name rather than an image file.
