Screen capture of the problem
[XVS.iOS 3.9 SR4] Attempting to set constraint priority causes crash due to NRE in "ConstraintPriorityPropertyEntry.spinButton_OnValueChanged()"
## Regressions status: REGRESSION somewhere between XamarinVS 3.9.483 and XamarinVS 3.9.533
BAD: Xamarin 3.11.271 (e36ba35) + Xamarin.iOS 126.96.36.199 (4dac6bf)
BAD: Xamarin 3.9.533 (66489f0) + Xamarin.iOS 188.8.131.52 (981acb3)
GOOD: Xamarin 3.9.483.0 (978be3d) + Xamarin.iOS 184.108.40.206 (ccfcd59)
## Steps to reproduce
1. Create a new Unified, iPhone, Single View application in Visual Studio.
2. Open "MainStoryboard.storyboard" in the designer.
3. Drag a UIButton from "Views -> Toolbox" into the View Controller.
4. With the UIButton in the view controller selected, click the green "plus" button in the iOS designer toolbar to add the recommended constraints.
5. Single-click the UIButton twice to enter constraints editing mode (do not double-click).
6. Drag a new constraint from the top of the button to the top of the view controller.
7. Select either of the duplicate constraints from the top of the button to the top of the view controller.
8. Change the length of the constraint to a different value using the "Properties -> Widget" window.
9. Lower the priority of the constraint to "900".
10. Click back in the iOS designer canvas (or anywhere else outside the priority text entry field).
Note: steps 6-10 are also demonstrated in the attached screen capture.
Visual Studio crashes.

Note: Xamarin Studio 5.9 on Mac does _not_ hit this bug.
I suspect bug 28782 might have the same underlying cause.
