Special Character breaks Build Path
I started a simple project to try Xamarin in Visual Studio at work. I have my code checked into GitHub. When I got home and pulled my code down it fails to build even though it works on my work computer. I noticed that it can't find the bin/Debug folder because it is misrepresenting my special character in my username.

Thanks for the report. There is some work underway that will hopefully address this bug in an upcoming release. I will mark this as a duplicate of the "main" report to consolidate further discussion and updates onto that bug.
One way to work around the problem temporarily would be to move the solution folder to a directory that does not contain any accented characters, for example:
