I have a new issue since i updated to VS2017 15.4.5 (or maybe it is mac OS high sierra)

VS2017 connects fine to the mac for build and debugging on simulator.
After some time (10/15mn), it disconnects from the mac and is unable to reconnect.

The only workaround is to kill the Xamarin IDB process on the mac, then ask VS2017 to reconnect.
Restarting VS2017 alone does not help.

Starting Agent Build
Starting Agent IDB
An error occured starting the Build agent: The Build Agent initialization exceeded the timeout of 60000 millisecs without receiving confirmation from the Agent.

I saw that you also commented on bug 60358. Are you still experiencing this issue with Xamarin on Windows and the latest Xamarin.iOS on the Mac?
