Description of Problem:

XamarinStdio on Windows (4.0.8 from alpha channel) hangs when creating an F# Android project on Windows.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. Install XS 4.0.8, the F# Language Binding and the F# for Android support
2. Create an "F# Ice Cream Sandwich" application

Actual Results: IDE hangs

Expected Results: Project created successfully

How often does this happen? All the time on my install

Additional Information:  

  - I will also try on the Mac. 

  - I attached a debugger and looked for a problematic callstack but didn't see anything

  - Opening and building a previously-created F# Android project works ok

BTW can you add "F# for Android" and "F# for iOS" to the list of choices for "Component" in Xamarin bug reports please?

Dave Thomas (@7sharp9) reports:

It doesn't hang the IDE on a Mac, it doesn't build either though.  It fails while generating the java stubs:

Target _GenerateJavaStubs:
: error XA0009: Error while loading assembly: /Users/dave/Projects/deleteice/deleteice/bin/Debug/deleteice.dll
	Task "GenerateJavaStubs" execution -- FAILED
	Done building target "_GenerateJavaStubs" in project "".-- FAILED

I can no longer reproduce this (XS 5.7), so closing for now.
