Description David Merriman 2012-10-01 13:28:24 UTC
I recently updated to 6.0.2, and my application no longer builds.  I get the following error message:

error MT0000: Unexpected error - Please file a bug report at http://bugzilla.xamarin.com

I know the stack trace is fairly useless as is, but I don't know what flags to pass the compiler to improve it.

If this was working in 6.0.1 then it's likely fixed in 6.0.3 (beta channel) since the MT4112 error [1] was changed to a more general [2] warning.

[1] which is likely what was about to be reported (the only registrar change in 6.0.2)
[2] which should not cause a NRE

David, can you try 6.0.3 from the beta channel to see if it works for you?
