Logs from customer
From this desk case:
Customer reports that when calling Insights.Initialize() method in their code, Visual Studio hangs after starting debugging. The customer notes that when removing the Insights.Initialize() method everything works as expected.
They also noted that using Insights.Initalize() in an empty project doesn't cause Visual Studio to hang.
Lastly, they said that they tried creating a fresh classic API project and copying over all the sources from their original project and that still reproduced the issue.

Adding customer's logs as an attachment.
Adding possibly related bug:
Bug 25212 - [VS3.9.141] Visual Studio 2010/2012/2013 hangs on Deployment of App to iOS Device with incorrect Provisioning Profile
In the "See Also" section of this report.
Adding Possibly related bug:
Bug 26025 - [Android] Visual Studio freezes while debugging
In the "See Also" section of this report.
Verified this bug and getting the VS Team's attention to getting this issue
fixed in the next release.
Not sure if this helps:
I was experiencing the Xamarin for Visual Studio(3.9.236) and Xamarin.iOS(8.6) hang when launching my app and calling Insights.Initialize. I reverted(uninstalled existing then installed previous) to the previous version of Xamarin for Visual Studio(3.8.150) and Xamarin.iOS(8.4). I only followed the Uninstall Xamarin Studio part of: http://developer.xamarin.com/guides/cross-platform/getting_started/installation/uninstalling_xamarin/#Uninstall_Xamarin_Studio
I did not do the Uninstall Mono SDK (MDK) part; however, I did trash Xamarin.iOS Build Host.app from Applications.
At this point I threw the following exception when launching my app:
Unhandled managed exception: Corrupted data ReadInternal (System.IO.IOException) at System.IO.Compression.DeflateStreamNative.CheckResult (Int32 result, System.String where) [0x000a5] in /Developer/MonoTouch/Source/monotouch/_build//Library/Frameworks/Xamarin.iOS.framework/Versions/git/src/mono/mcs/class/System/System.IO.Compression/DeflateStream.cs:477 at System.IO.Compression.DeflateStreamNative.ReadZStream (IntPtr buffer, Int32 length) [0x0000e] in /Developer/MonoTouch/Source/monotouch/_build//Library/Frameworks/Xamarin.iOS.framework/Versions/git/src/mono/mcs/class/System/System.IO.Compression/DeflateStream.cs:375 at System.IO.Compression.DeflateStream.ReadInternal (System.Byte array, Int32 offset, Int32 count) [0x0002f] in /Developer/MonoTouch/Source/monotouch/_build//Library/Frameworks/Xamarin.iOS.framework/Versions/git/src/mono/mcs/class/System/System.IO.Compression/DeflateStream.cs:125 at System.IO.Compression.DeflateStream.Read (System.By te dest, Int32 dest_offset, Int32 count) [0x00086] in /Developer/MonoTouch/Source/monotouch/_build//Library/Frameworks/Xamarin.iOS.framework/Versions/git/src/mono/mcs/class/System/System.IO.Compression/DeflateStream.cs:145 at System.IO.Compression.GZipStream.Read (System.Byte dest, Int32 dest_offset, Int32 count) [0x0001c] in /Developer/MonoTouch/Source/monotouch/_build//Library/Frameworks/Xamarin.iOS.framework/Versions/git/src/mono/mcs/class/System/System.IO.Compression/GZipStream.cs:80 at Xamarin.InsightsCore.IOWriter.ReadDiskImage (System.String fileName) [0x00000] in :0 at Xamarin.InsightsCore.CachedString..ctor (System.String id, Boolean doNotHash) [0x00000] in :0 at Xamarin.InsightsCore.Core..ctor () [0x00000] in :0 at Xamarin.InsightsCore.Device.get_Core () [0x00000] in :0 at Xamarin.Insights.Initialize (System.String apiKey) [0x00000] in :0
I suspect that there may be a problem with the latest MDK which causes this exception as well as a problem with the way the latest Xamarin for Visual Studio works with the debugger and the Corrupted data ReadInternal exception, compared to previous versions.
As discussed yesterday with Ian Ceicys, this issue is fixed in XVS 3.9.274.
Verified Fixed in build 3.9.274
