This issue needs to be reopened as it still exists with the new build of installers:

Environment information:
All Mac
Xcode 4.4.1 and Xcode 4.5
MD 3.0.5 - 79b50f35b348b46c7f0111d9fda1870c157e7381
MT 6.0.5 - 0dbe732a297e73d54614d370288c05ef05355cbb
Mono 2.10.9

Device information:
iPod Touch iOS 6.0
iPhone 4S iOS 5.1.1
iPhone 4 iOS 6.0
All iOS Devices which we have.

And it is not appearing with the stable version of MT 6.0.4
