.NET 4.0 Client Profile missing references.

Our team is migrating from Xamarin Studio to Visual Studio for Mac. We are targeting both Windows and Mac OS platform and we must use ".NET Framework 4 Client Profile" target framework.
In Xamarin Studio everything always worked well, however the same project in VS is missing a bunch of references (for example System.XML or Microsoft.CSharp) and it's impossible to add those.
The same release of Mono is used in both VS and XS. Switching to .NET 4.0 (non-client profile) fixes references but it's not an option for us.

Is there any way to fix this behavior in VS or we should continue using XS for now?


Looks like Visual Studio 7.1 Preview doesn't have this issue.
