Using Xamarin Studio 5.0 (build 878) with Xamarin.Mac 126.96.36.199, it appears that both Xamarin.Mac and MonoMac cannot call a PCL (excluding Silverlight/Windows Phone platforms, for example PCL 4.5 Profile 7) method which uses Marshal. When the method is called, a TypeLoadException is thrown:
> A System.TypeLoadException was thrown. Could not load type 'System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal' from assembly 'MacPCLMarshalTest.Core'.
I've attached an example solution which demos this issue.

I have checked this Issue and I am unable to reproduce this Issue. Using attached project I am successfully able to run application and I am not seeing any crash.
I have checked with latest stable builds:
X.S 5.2 (Build 386)
Git revision: e6a54dee5376e6e7a2d9982695b060fddc09e65d
@Richard, Could you please check it again with latest builds?
@Saurabh Thanks for the heads up, just checked the demo project again with Xamarin.Mac 188.8.131.52 and looks like it works fine now. I'll mark the bug as resolved.
