Description Rolf Bjarne Kvinge [MSFT] 2017-06-27 19:00:17 UTC
Test case:

	[Export ("setCGAffineTransformValueRefNonNullable:")]
	void SetCGAffineTransformValueRefNonNullable ([BindAs (typeof (CGAffineTransform))] ref NSValue value);

results in:

	BTOUCH: error BI1048: bgen: Unsupported type CATransform3D decorated with [BindAs]

which is slightly misleading, because "CATransform3D" is a supported type (it's "CATransform3D&", the ref variant, which isn't).
