Running my app from VS2015, the simulator keeps freezing when attempting to navigate round the app, including scrolling

Just to clarify, when I say the simulator is freezing, it does not respond and I get Apple's spinning beach ball cursor.

Hi James,
which Xamarin version you were in when you got this error? are you still experiencing this behaviour with latest alpha version?

Hi. I'm currently using Xamarin v4.0.1.147 and Xamarin.iOS, but I don't think I've had the issue in the last couple of weeks, so it may have sorted itself. In case it helps identify similar problems, I had found that I was usually getting the freeze when I interrupted an animation on the simulator, and that it happened even when not debugging.

Ah ha, I just got the same problem today using the versions above.

As we've added several improvements to our build system and deploying/debugging mechanism since the bug was reported, I'm resolving it tentatively as Fixed.
That said, if you're still facing this issue with current bits, please feel free to reopen the bug.
