using MonoDevelop 126.96.36.199
Cleaning: VKWApp (Debug|iPhone)
---------------------- Done ----------------------
Clean failed. Object reference not set to an instance of an object
Fixed in git master
Just to explain exactly what was wrong:
1) Create a MonoTouch project
2) Add a new Library project
3) Add some xib files to the Library project
Result: A null reference exception is thrown when compiling/cleaning/whatever.
This was caused by MonoDevelop trying to open an Info.plist file in the Library project which normally does not contain one.
Fix is in the current beta 188.8.131.52
Actually, this problem was caused by a custom build command with an empty executable field value.
Also, the patch wasn't backported to 184.108.40.206, so this shouldn't be fixed unless someone else backported it.
