So it is actually a NuGet issue.
Comment 10 Greg Munn 2016-02-09 16:09:30 UTC
Matt, FWIW, I didn't repro it either until I installed master XI and XM (but I can't recall if I was using the right template at the time).

Managed to repro this. I had to install Xamarin Studio 6.0.3322 and then running the QA automation tests I hit the hang straight away. Testing my local copy of Xamarin Studio built from master seemed to be OK.

The UI thread is hung MonoDevelopWorkspace.ApplyDocumentTextChanged. The line that has locked the UI seems to be doing a .Result:

oldFile = document.GetTextAsync ().Result;

MonoDevelop.Ide.TypeSystem.MonoDevelopWorkspace.ApplyDocumentTextChanged (Microsoft.CodeAnalysis.DocumentId,Microsoft.CodeAnalysis.Text.SourceText) [0x0015f] in /Users/builder/data/lanes/432/4b3fe99a/source/monodevelop/main/src/core/MonoDevelop.Ide/MonoDevelop.Ide.TypeSystem/MonoDevelopWorkspace.cs:720

Full callstacks for GUI Thread and NuGet are shown in the following Gist:


It does not look like the NuGet addin has hung the UI thread. It looks like its background thread is still waiting to run some code on the UI thread.

Also I am using Mono 4.2.2 so I am guessing that rules out Mono 4.3 as a cause of the hang.

Running some tests I can repro the problem most of the time with Xamarin Studio Out of 10 runs of the QA automation test TestCreateBuildMultiPlatformSpriteKitGame Xamarin Studio hangs 7 out of 10 times.

With Xamarin Studio I cannot reproduce a hang. 10 runs of the QA automation test TestCreateBuildMultiPlatformSpriteKitGame and everyone worked without a UI hang. Since nothing else in my environment has changed, just Xamarin Studio, it seems that the hang is due to Xamarin Studio and not due to Xamarin.iOS or Xamarin.Mac.

Looking at the commits for Xamarin Studio possibly a newer version of Roslyn has fixed a problem since I can see it has been updated recently.

XS commit:

Going to mark this as fixed. If it happens again please re-open this bug.

Xamarin Insights disable in C7 so I am going to remove the target milestone.

Comment 15 Manish Sinha 2016-05-17 17:17:15 UTC
The issue was fixed on the XS UITest.
