controller file to display the pdf file using MVVMCross library

My app successfully display pdf report file on iPad/iPhone when running with monotouch version 5.2.5; after upgrading to 5.2.12 the app was frozen after the report is displayed on the device, the screen was completely frozen.  Could only hit home key to go back the the home window, when I select the app icon to launch it again, it went back to the frozen pdf view.

I contacted supported, spoke with Chris to ask for help rolling back to version 5.2.5.  After reinstall monotouch to version 5.2.5, this frozen view problem went away, the app is working again.  We are using MVVM cross platform library to display our reports. Attached is the piece of code that was call to display the pdf file in the view

Can you create a crash report for this hang by following the instructions here: http://rolfkvinge.blogspot.com.es/2012/05/monotouch-debugging-tips.html ?

That should tell us what the app is trying to do when it hangs.
