crash report from console.app

A customer has complained that when changing the output of a C project his entire machine locks up causing the system to crash. 

He is running XS 4.0 on 10.8.2. The machine is a 4 year old iMac and he is able to reproduce this issue consistently. 

Please find attached a crash report.

Is there a crash log from the apple crash reporter?
Comment 2 Marius Ungureanu 2016-11-07 09:27:23 UTC
The C binding is no longer part of base Xamarin Studio package list. It is now an external addin under github.com/mhutch/cbinding.

Marking the bug as NOT_ON_ROADMAP. If the bug still occurs, please open a github issue there.
