Description Brian Berry 2013-09-22 01:03:36 UTC
Created attachment 4953 [details]
Xcode5 Instruments run.

Steps to reproduce:
  1. Launch Xamarin Studio.
  2. Create a new project somewhere (C# console app is adequate).
  3. Note the CPU usage of the Xamarin Studio project.

Found: The Xamarin Studio main thread is pegged at 100% CPU with even a simple project open.

Expected: Minimal CPU use in steady state / no-activity conditions.

  * Attached is an Xcode5 Instruments run for about a 1.5min soak in this condition, for use in visualizing the callstack(s) of interest.
