When using the archive and publish feature in Xamarin Studio, it appears that dynamic frameworks are not re-signed correctly.
If the app is built with one profile yet a different profile is selected for the publish step you will see the former cert was used to sign the dynamic framework.
I have attached a solution for testing as well as 3 ipa files. If you extract the contents of DevCertBuildPublishDistCert.ipa and check the info for MyLibFw and TestAdHocApp you will see 2 different certs being used.
unzip DevCertBuildPublishDistCert.ipa -d test
codesign -dvv test/Payload/TestAdHocApp.app/Frameworks/MyLibFw.framework/MyLibFw
# outputs Authority=iPhone Developer: William Holmes (7NLBGWH956)
codesign -dvv test/Payload/TestAdHocApp.app/TestAdHocApp
#outputs Authority=iPhone Distribution: William Holmes (CN96H2279W)
Compare that to the results of DistCertBuild.ipa. Both TestAdHocApp and MyLibFw show the Distribution cert.
I believe this is causing ipa install or runtime errors such as https://github.com/mono/SkiaSharp/issues/100

Not sure if the logic too be fixed is in XS (or in the msbuild) -> Jeff
The logic for resigning for publishing is in XS. I think the logic for signing *.dylibs already exists in the msbuild logic.
I'll verify tho.
Fixed in version 188.8.131.5241 (cycle8)

Fixed in XS master & cycle8 branches.
msbuild already does the right thing.
Oops, fixed now.
Verified with XamarinStudio-184.108.40.20636
