project that reproduces the exception

The relevant code:

public override void ViewDidLoad()

   // Perform any additional setup after loading the view, typically from a nib.

      Dictionary<long, IList<double?>> data = new Dictionary<long, IList<double?>>
         {123L, new List<double?> {2.0, null, 5.5}}
      Dictionary<long, double?> newDict = ConvertDictionary(data);
   catch (Exception e)

private static Dictionary<long, TValue> ConvertDictionary<TValue>(Dictionary<long, IList<TValue>> source)
   return source.ToDictionary(pair => pair.Key, pair => pair.Value[0]);

This causes this exception on an actual iPad. (It works fine on a simulator)

@Zoltan, I can reproduce this on device with both armv7 and arm64, but it does not happen in the simulator.
Comment 2 Ram Chandra 2015-08-11 06:59:00 UTC
I have checked this issue and I am able to reproduce this issue. I have checked the same on simulator but I am not getting the Null reference exception on simulator. The NRE exist on iPad.

Comment 3 Sebastien Pouliot 2015-08-13 12:02:32 UTC
Confirmed it's not linker related (works in simulator/linking, fails on devices/not linking)
Comment 4 Zoltan Varga 2015-08-14 20:38:39 UTC
Should be fixed by mono mono-4.2.0-pre2-branch 917c8f6b125f649aec21aae643c78563cb6b27a1/ and mono-extensions 137f7b9b070fe365875b0b593ea87fb6ef16e1a2. The fix will be in an later xamarin.ios release.
