I would like to use UIAutomation for UI-Testing.
Unfortunately the accessibility-flag of all the controls is disabled. Therefore UIAutomation does nit work. 
When I set the accessibility of all controls manually, I am able to use UIAutomation. But the settings are not saved and I have to set them all the time.
Can I set the accessibility globally and have it it saved?
What am I to do to be able to use UIAutomation with mono-touch?

UIAutomation works fine for testing (Xamarin TestCloud uses it extensively for exactly that purpose for instance), so I don't think this is a bug in Xamarin.iOS.

If you still think I'm wrong, please attach a test project, explaining exactly the steps you're doing and what you expect to to happen, so that we can reproduce any issues ourselves.
