I've experienced the same problem with a layout file - if I drag it to VS or right-click-add existing item I get the same hang. 

I managed to work around it by copying the file using explorer, turning on show all files and doing right-click-add.

@Jim: Thanks for your add.
I have tried that with an Image some time ago (copy .png in \drawable\-folder and the add to project).
It has not worked (maybe the behavior is not the same with layout-files).
