Text sent to the console is displayed with `NSLog` to the Application Output. IIRC there was a bug in iOS9 with it and it's possible that the workaround is messing with some string encoding. I'll check that (and see if it's still required in the case it's still present).
Removing the workaround fix the issue (and it seems fixed in iOS final builds).
First I have reproduced this issue with latest C6 builds and observed that this in application output text '—Ç–µ—Å—Ç' is displaying instead of "Tect".
C6 Build monotouch-188.8.131.52_1a6b88f2b2305d50bad065ae4c7292ab6348ff60
Verified this issue on master monotouch-184.108.40.206_03b93e71acd019f362d67f053697557f9b7fa175 and observed that now application output text is displaying as 'Tect'.
