Description Chris Hardy [MSFT] 2013-01-30 07:46:29 UTC
When building a Mono for Android project on Windows where the file path contains accented characters, this causes the following error message: 

error MSB6006: "mandroid.exe" exited with code -1.

I suspect that this is a duplicate of Bug #10669 , which should be fixed in 4.6.1.
