---Overview---
From this priority desk case:
https://xamarin.desk.com/agent/case/111041

Customer's iOS binding project fails with "Unexpected error - Please file a bug report" when building in Visual Studio.

---Steps to reproduce---
I was able to reproduce the issue in Visual Studio as described below:

1. Open project in Visual Studio.
-> The "Unexpected error - Please file a bug report" is thrown as a warning.
2. Build project.
-> Build stops and the "Unexpected error - Please file a bug report" is thrown as an error.

---Expected Behavior---
I was able to confirm the project could be built successfully in Xamarin Studio, and the customer noted that the issue occurred after getting the latest Xamarin for Visual Studio updates; so it seems like it should build correctly. Even if there's a specific reason (missing feature, currently unsupported etc.) why it's expected the project wouldn't build in Visual Studio the error message should be more helpful / descriptive as to what's failing.

---Additional Info---
The sample to reproduce the issue is from a customer; so I will add it as a private attachment shortly. I'm also including the logs from my repo of the issue.

Though the same project builds successfully in Xamarin Studio; it does throw 9 warnings that are all of the following format, the only difference being the methods it refers to:

> '%METHOD%' hides inherited member '%METHOD%' To make the current member override that implementation, add the override keyword. Otherwise add the new keyword (CS0114) 

This doesn't seem to me to be likely related to the cause of the bug; but I'm noting it to be through.

(Turns out I actually filed this issue myself before and forgot about it. I think this means I'm ready for the weekend :)
