This is WONTFIX in mono:
So I've opened a bug in xbuild:
I'm closing this as it is not a bug report per se and both bug #9128 and bug #9146 have been dealt with. Thanks for taking the time to file the issues.
There's still a bug here, but it's much less severe. As long as the external builder is running, the dependent assemblies will not be updated, because it (the external build mono process) still has the original assembly loaded. It should only affect the up-to-date status of the project, and not the actual build process.
I'm not sure if the assembly metadata is used for anything else in the external builder.
