Sample demonstrating the bug (needs the Tamarin.pdf attachment linked)
Steps to reproduce:
1) Extract the sample from the attached ZoomingPdfViewer_needs_link_to_pdf.zip
2) Open the ZoomingPdfViewer.sln in Visual Studio
3) Put the attached Tamarin.pdf file on your desktop
4) Right click the solution and choose Add->Existing file
5) Navigate to the desktop and select Tamarin.pdf, but don't click 'Add'
6) Use the dropdown menu next to 'Add' and select 'Add as link'.
7) Set the build action of the Tamarin.pdf file to 'Content'.
7) Attempt to start debugging the app.
Tamarin.pdf is transferred to the build server.
App builds, deploys, and runs as expected.
"There were deployment errors. Continue?"
And in the Build output:
The remote server returned an error (500) Internal Server Error
Instead of linking to the pdf file, choose the regular 'Add'.
This bug occurs with the 1.10.39 release of Xamarin.iOS for VS. It will be fixed for Xamarin.iOS for VS 1.12. For now, please use the workaround.

Any timeframe on when the build host will stop crashing if you use linked files?
Even though I use PCLs, I also use linked files sometimes, especially for cross platform shared resources, where I like to avoid multiple copies of the same image or icon.
This will be fixed in XamarinVS 1.12, which just went into QA for another round of testing. I have no estimate for you, unfortunately.
I have checked this issue with following builds:
Xamarin for VS 1.12.247
Now application builds, deployed and launched successfully. I have add as link pdf file and then run it.
Hence closing this issue
