Sample project demonstrating the exception
We're getting an exception when we instantiate LayerDrawable. It appears the exception is handled in some fashion because app execution continues after the exception. However it is disruptive when debugging with the catch all System.Exception breakpoint set. Attached is a sample project along with a screenshot. If you run the project with the System.Exception breakpoint set you should see the exception right away. The code in question is as follows:
Drawable drawables = new Drawable
// exception happens here:
LayerDrawable layerDrawable = new LayerDrawable(drawables);

screenshot of the exception
I forgot to post the details of the exception. Here it is:
Didn't find class "android.graphics.drawables.Drawable" on path: DexPathList[[zip file "/data/app/NavigationDrawer.NavigationDrawer-2.apk"],nativeLibraryDirectories=[/data/app-lib/NavigationDrawer.NavigationDrawer-2, /system/lib]]

That is correct: it's a handled exception.
It's a duplicate of https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=9615 then?
> It's a duplicate of Bug #9615?
Not exactly. Bug #9615 would allow *you* to tell the IDE to ignore the exceptions internally generated by Xamarin.Android.
Alternatively, we could (with a fair amount of work) remove the need for those exceptions in the first place. (Which is something I'd like to do, but the timeframe is unknown.)
Allowing us to tell the IDE to ignore sounds good.
The exception should be fixed by monodroid/e69b76e2.
