If you run the attached project in its current state you will get an InvalidProgramException. If you change the GenericObject<T> class to derive from nothing (instead of NSView), you will see that everything runs as expected.
Apologies on the long delay in response. This bug was misfiled and thus was not looked at.
This issue has been fixed if you move to the Unified API of Xamarin.Mac in 1.12 (Alpha/Beta right now).
