It appears that simulator builds don't work correctly on certain filesystems such as Parallels shared drives. This is probably due to issues with symlinks on those filesystems.
mtouch should detect filesystems without symlink support (or with broken symlink support) and fall back to copying. This would fix the problem, though at the expense of a longer build time.
I'll setup to duplicate this.
In the meantime it's possible to use --nofastsim (or the linker) to workaround this (at the extra expense of rebuilding a launcher each time).
fixed in master
