Description jesse.attas 2012-05-30 18:11:27 UTC
Since the 3.0 update, unhanded C# exceptions are no longer generating useful call stacks and crash reports on the iPad (it works fine in the simulator). It appears that the MonoTouch exception handler is hanging while trying to handle the exception thrown from our code. This makes it difficult to debug our exceptions as we can't see the type or message of the exception.

If you kill the app after it gets into this state, often you will not be able to relaunch it until you reboot the device. It just gives you a black screen that stays up until the OS kills the app for taking too long to launch.

Here's part of an example call stack:
0x01eeb786 mono_aot_find_jit_info (aot-runtime.c:1661)
0x01f260de mono_jit_info_table_find (domain.c:445)
0x01eef812 mini_jit_info_table_find (mini-exceptions.c:1035)
0x01eefcda mono_find_jit_info_ext (mini-exceptions.c:356)
0x01ef014c 0x1000 + 32436556
0x01ef0cbe 0x1000 + 32439486
0x01ef12a2 mono_handle_exception (mini-exceptions.c:1828)
0x01f08e46 handle_signal_exception (exceptions-arm.c:532)
0x00b4f4a8 mscorlib_System_Collections_Generic_List_1_AddEnumerable_System_Collections_Generic_IEnumerable_1_T (mscorlib.dll.7.s:75812)
0x00b4f4a8 mscorlib_System_Collections_Generic_List_1_AddEnumerable_System_Collections_Generic_IEnumerable_1_T (mscorlib.dll.7.s:75812)
0x00b4ef68 mscorlib_System_Collections_Generic_List_1__ctor_System_Collections_Generic_IEnumerable_1_T (mscorlib.dll.7.s:75325)
0x00a8dbe4 System_Core_System_Linq_Enumerable_ToList_TSource_System_Collections_Generic_IEnumerable_1_TSource (System.Core.dll.7.s:9729)
0x00dc6e60

Comment 1 Rolf Bjarne Kvinge 2012-05-31 08:41:44 UTC
I believe this has been fixed in the upcoming 5.3.4 release, which should be released today or tomorrow. Can you try that release to see if the same thing happens? Or maybe you can create a complete test case we can try out ourselves?
Comment 2 jesse.attas 2012-05-31 10:45:52 UTC
I'll update when it's released and let you know if we still see this. Thanks!
