Apple rejects the setLayoutOrientation: selector, which shows up in Xamarin.iOS.dll because we've incorrectly bound NSTextLayoutOrientationProvider.LayoutOrientation as a read-write property when it's a read-only property.

A potential workaround would be to enable the linker for all assemblies, so that it removes the LayoutOrientation property (this will not work for all projects though).
