Example project demonstrating the problem
"Step into" debugger functionality does not work correctly. It used to work in older MonoDevelop + monotouch.
The attached sample project demonstrates the problem.
Do the following:
1 Open the project in Xamarin Studio
2 Set a breakpoint on line 27 of StepIntoDefectViewController.cs (in the OnBtnBugTouchUpInside method).
3 Run-debug the project
4 When you hit the breakpoint try to step into the code line. Instead what happens is that the app just keeps running, skipping both the method to step into and also the rest of the event handler method OnBtnBugTouchUpInside.
This is not at all how I would expect it to work, and not how it works in Visual Studio.
Stressing with this is costing me as a developer a lot of time. Please help me find a solution to this :-)

Does this happen on the simulator, or on the device ?
It happens in the simulator, I haven't tried it on the device yet
As a workaround, you can try disabling the 'Step over properties and operators' in Preferences/Debugger.
Thanks I will try it :-) It would be nice to have a fix to this problem though, since it is quite important functionality.
So this is not necessarily a bug. You probably have both the 'step over properties and operators' and the 'debug project code only' options set, so the debugger tries to single step until it reaches code which is
neither. Since that particular method only contains property accesses and calls to framework code (x.ToString ()), it just single steps indefinitely.
Fixed in master
