I am using SlSvcUtil.exe to generate DomainService classes to access our existing WCF RIA Services server (using a soap endpoint).
However after upgrading to MonoTouch 22.214.171.124 I am now unable to get/set the CookieContainer property on the generated domain service classes.
The get function always returns null and the set function throws the following exception: "System.InvalidOperationException: Unable to set the CookieContainer.
Please make sure the binding contains an HttpCookieContainerBindingElement."
Getting and setting the CookieContainer worked perfectly in MonoTouch 4.0.3.
This issue is the exact same as the one posted here: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/5425011/unable-to-set-cookiecontainer-on-service-client-in-monotouch/6895995
Please attach a small test case (so I'm sure I testing the same code you're hitting) and I'll track down the regression. Thanks!

Simple test case
I have attached a simple test project that shows the problem. Code runs fine on MT 4.0.3 but not 126.96.36.199.
It works here. My code is more recent (than 188.8.131.52) but I don't recall any WCF related changes.
// On MT 4.0.3 the property will return a valid object. MT 184.108.40.206 returns null.
CookieContainer cookieContainer = authClient.CookieContainer;
That's not null for me.
// MT 220.127.116.11 throws an exception regardless of cookieContainer being a valid object or not. Works fine on MT 4.0.3
authClient.CookieContainer = cookieContainer;
That works without any exception (but your exception was likely related to the null value).
Can you confirm the attached sample fails for you ? (last minute error ?)
I'll ask around if someone has 18.104.22.168 installed to compare results.
I just retested the attached sample on 4.0.3 and 22.214.171.124 on both the simulator and on my device. On 4.0.3 cookieContainer is a valid object, but on 126.96.36.199 it is null and the exception is thrown.
Setting the property will throw the exception on 188.8.131.52 regardless of the cookieContainer being null or valid. The reason is the httpCookieContainerManager being null inside the authClient.CookieContainer property.
I am using MonoDevelop 2.4.2 on MacOS 10.6.8.
Rodrigo, using MT master just like me, does not get the exception. Sadly I'm not exactly sure why that happens on 184.108.40.206 (a lot of build changes occurred since then).
Please try again once MT 4.1 is released and, worse case scenario, re-open the bug report if it still occurs.
