Description Chris Hamons 2016-10-11 15:41:21 UTC
In this code:


We call set_dir during Xamarin.Mac application launch:

frame #0: RemotingTest`mono_set_dirs()
frame #1: RemotingTest`app_initialize()
frame #2: RemotingTest`::xamarin_main()
frame #3: RemotingTest`main()

and then invoke mono_main which overwrites are requested dirs:

frame #0: RemotingTest`fallback [inlined] mono_set_dirs(assembly_dir="/Users/donblas/Programming/macios/master/xamarin-macios/builds/install/mac64/lib", config_dir="/Users/donblas/Programming/macios/master/xamarin-macios/builds/install/mac64/etc") at assembly.c:588 [opt]
frame #1: RemotingTest`fallback + 23
frame #2: RemotingTest`mono_set_rootdir
frame #3: RemotingTest`mono_main() 
frame #4: RemotingTest`::xamarin_main()
frame #5: RemotingTest`main()

This appears to be a bug in the embedding API?

Worked around in XM with https://github.com/xamarin/xamarin-macios/pull/971
