Does the app crash?  Do you get any kind of message in logcat?  Or does it just silently hang?

It appears to just silently hang.  Sometimes, I will see about 5 messages in AppOutput saying "Thread started", but that is not consistent.  I didn't see anything else in LogCat.

The issue no longer exists in the current versions of Xamarin.Android (tested with monodroid/master, commit 70dc4f2a9852c8a72e88c51f8e4e48d396f28e7d)
