Summary: When we run iOS application is Debug mode by adding breakpoint in desired position.Application runs properly but breakpoint does not hit and stop at that position.

1.Open Visual Studio.
2.Create a iOS solution
3.Add breakpoint to desired position
4.Run application in debug mode

Expected Result: Breakpoint should hit and debugger should stop on the breakpoint.

Actual Result: Application is running successfully without hitting breakpoint.

Note:This Bug is reproducible in WatchOS and TvOS

@Saurabh is this reproducible from a Mac (with Xamarin Studio) ? or only in VS ?

If the later then the bug needs to be assigned to "Visual Studio Extensions".

@Sebastien I observe this issue only on VS.Changing product to "Visual Studio Extensions"

Verified the fix using (1585aad/d15-2) - I am able to hit breakpoints in VS2013/15/17 now.
