Debugging extensions sometimes fails with:

> error HE0047: Failed to request XPC observation:  (2). Please try again.

Retrying always works.

This is a spin-off from bug #52717.

Correction, it's a spin-off from bug #52710 (https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=52710#c6)

I haven't been able to figure this out, nor is it very reproducible.

If it's consistently failing, one fix is to reboot the device/simulator.

Otherwise it's just a matter of trying again.
