I'm getting a "cannot execute ....." error after a successful build for a monotouch application (using standard libraries).
I can run the application in the iPhone simulator fine, but the debugger won't connect.
Also tested with a new
"HelloWorld" project, and get the same error:
*Cannot execute "... path to bin files ..."*
Cannot find any further information in build errors / warnings, application
This appears to be exactly the same as the following error:

This looks like a Xamarin.iOS bug based on this forum thread: http://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/2452/cannot-execute-in-debug-mode-any-ios-project-even-hello-world#latest
The second comment states that if he downgrades to Xamarin.iOS 184.108.40.206, then debugging works for him.
Xamarin.iOS 220.127.116.11 (and newer?) fails.
This looks like the same as http://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/comment/8565/#Comment_8565.
Probably because device-targeting merge made MD connect using port 10000 for the simulator (when we previously let the system chose any available port) - was that intentional, mhutch?
Potential fix is here: https://gist.github.com/rolfbjarne/c78abc10b909a6099c07
This was not intentional.
IMO a better fix would be for IPhoneSettings.DebuggerPort to default to 0 though.
IPhoneSettings.DebuggerPort can't be 0 because it will break usb debugging - XS won't know which port to connect to on the device.
this is fixed, btw
