I discovered and reported this bug already in August 2014 and Xamarin has
still not yet fixed it. I can spare you the effort of trying to build and
use the sysdrawing-coregraphics library which at first seems to be a
workaround. However there is a catch-22 since it will require XamMac.dll to
be built along with it and only Xamarin can do that (unless of course you
are using MonoMac in which case you may be able to build it). In addition
to this it is only partly implemented.
We simply need to keep pushing for Xamarin to solve this once for all.
