I am using NSOutlineView to display a folder tree of remote CMIS server, and I implements CmisTreeDataSource derived from NSOutlineViewDataSource. In the CmisTreeDataSource, there is a member variable that uses some advanced .net technologies such as System.ComponentModel.BackgroundWorker and System.ComponentModel.INotifyPropertyChanged.
During the test, I find it crashed very frequently as blow:

I find MonoMac uses marshal technology to transit between native cocoa codes and managed .net codes, and I hesitate that manshal does not work well for the dynamic data structures (BackgroundWorker as backend thread, which will change the CmisTreeDataSource member variable). Is my point correct, or there are some other issues?
Now I have used some other technologies to avoid dynamic data structures, and it works well. Still I want to know what the possible root cause is, and I can take care it in later days.
It is likely caused by background updates to your state.
But hard to pinpoint without a complete test case.
Also the logs do not show what actually happened, so it is hard to tell.
It seems the latest Xamarin.Mac 22.214.171.124 (currently used by me) is much stabler, and this issue is fixed already.
And I think may be the same issue with my previously reported one: https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=17365, which is also fixed in a later Xamarin.Mac version.
You can close this issue.
