Sorry, but i didn't know if these files are straight related to the bug, because i tried solve troubles by my self. I decided open this ticket when all my tries failed.

These files are directly related to this problem.
I have the same problem in VS2010
What ups with this ?
Can you send us a copy of the storyboard which triggers the error? It'll make it much easier to fix the issue.
I was able to trigger this locally. We're working on a fix now.
We've got this fixed and will try to get it into a release soon.
We have tried to verify this issue. As we are not able to reproduce this issue, so we could not verify this issue.
Leaving this issue as Resolved fixed and reporter(Willian Correa) will verify and close this issue when he will get the fixed build.
Alan, can you add any more about what changed between comment 7 and comment 8 that helped you reproduce the issue locally?
I added an automated test covering the issue, but for manual verification purposes this bug can be triggered by:
1) Click on an empty part of the design surface and ensure that the storyboard properties have 'autolayout' enabled. This is constraint mode. I believe it's enabled by default.
2) Add a UIViewController to the surface
3) Drag and drop a View (a plain 'View') onto the viewcontroller
4) Drag and drop a Button into the View you just put in the ViewController
5) Click on the button when it's already selected to enable constraint editing mode
7) Create two constraints between the button and the View it is inside.
8) Click on an empty part of the surface and disable constraint mode
I have checked this issue via following steps mention in comment 12, and I am not getting any crash when I enable/disable Autolayout chekbox as shown in screencast : http://screencast.com/t/FcBexoenxq3
Hence closing this issue.
