During development, Visual Studio 2012 would become unresponsive (hand sometimes for a minute with around 15% CPU utilization) and recover and sometimes would not recover, requiring killing it.
This unresponsiveness can be observed when one stops debugging a MonoDroid app in VS by clicking the stop button. VS would hang for 10-15 secs and then recover.
My dev box is 64 bit Win8
I have checked this issue but unable to reproduce this issue. Could you please let us know if you getting same behavior on latest build? Also provide us IDE Log and Output Log file.
You can get IDE Log via: Help->Zip Xamarin Logs

Still happening here. Happening often while Debuging iOS apps (6 times today) on VS2013.
Mine never recover and I'm forced to shudown VS. Can't access those logs if VS is irresponsive.
I have tried this issue and unable to reproduce the reported behavior at my end.
Steps To Followed.
1. Create an iOS application.
2. Run the application on Device/Simulator.
