Description of Problem:
Assembly name of main app can not contain a period.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Create a new monotouch Iphone app project and name it- Test.App
[2.  Side effect is that Apps assembly name will contain a period]
[Alternatively you could just whip out an existing app and put a period in that
assembly name build property.  So may be quicker to test out by just changing
ExistingApp to Existing.App???]

Actual Results:
Run it and it will hang/simulator will fail to start.

Expected Results:
I would expect that this should not cause any problems.

How often does this happen? 

Additional Information:
I am unsure at what point it is causing the problem [during build, deployment,
runtime processing logical filenames, etc???  Not sure about that?].  Anyway,
not a big deal really.  It was tedious to track down exactly the cause.  Of
course the workaround seems rather obvious once you know the cause and indeed
it is- just change the assembly name in build output to TestApp and it works
