The DependentUpon attribute in a csproj file is not updated after the parent file is moved to a subfolder. For example, creating a new controller class in MonoTouch and then moving it to a subfolder breaks the dependency (see attached image).

I have the same problem. The only way to fix it is via manual edit of the csproj and reloading the project in MonoDevelop. You have to do this every time you add a new file - very annoying.

I can confirm that this is an issue for me as well.  I am using IB to create the controller classes.

It looks like MD adds instead of updates the existing entries in csproj.  Here is csproj before I moved the files into a subfolder:

    <Compile Include="TestViewController.cs" />
    <Compile Include="TestViewController.designer.cs">

After Moving the files into the Controller subfolder.

    <Compile Include="TestViewController.designer.cs">
    <Compile Include="Controller\TestViewController.cs" />
    <Compile Include="Controller\TestViewController.designer.cs">
