If I open the iOS project properties and move to the iOS Bundle Signing tab before Visual Studio has had the chance to connect to the MAC and download the provisioning profiles / etc once the connection has been established (so I leave this screen open whilst it connects) I am then stuck on this page and any attempt to close it / move to another tab, etc results in a "Object Reference Not Set To An Instances Of An Object" exception. No profiles show up in the Identity and Provisioning profile tabs either once this has happened.

I have to force close Visual Studio and remember to wait for the connection to the MAC before I go to this page in my project properties.
