I'm heavily using Resharper decompiler in Visual Studio to glance at the base classes instead of going to the documentation websites.
In all apps the decompiler does its work nicely. 
But with Xamarin ios the abstract classes seems to have no method.

In the example below, the class is SKPaymentTransactionObserver.
The decomilation shows no method at all.
But but if you create a class and derive from SKPaymentTransactionObserver, the visual studio tip displays the list of methods that are availablefor overriding correctly.

Any way to get the decompilation working correctly?
It helps prevent going to the documentations website, and answers lots of questions.

Since the out of the box of VS shows the method correctly marking the bug as resolved/upstream.
