After installing Mono nightly I am no longer able to open Xamarin Studio.

The release was got from http://download.mono-project.com/archive/nightly/macos-10-x86/
http://download.mono-project.com/archive/nightly/macos-10-x86/MonoFramework-MDK-4.3.0.723.macos10.xamarin.x86.pkg

I checked the logs at ~/Library/Logs/XamarinStudio-5.0 and there are no log entries since the failure. The log prior is as follows.
