Description Robert Jordan 2012-08-19 15:10:57 UTC
According to Apple's specs[1], UITouch.LocationInView(null) should return the touch location
in window coordinates, but MonoTouch is throwing ANE when view == null.

The same might apply to PreviousLocationInView as well, although I didn't test it.

You're right on both cases. Null should be allowed for the method.
