Crash reports, screenshots, system information and event logs.

Xamarin Studio crashes without any discoverable consistency in the situations leading to the crashes. It seems the problem is more frequent when working with android resources, which triggers automatic compiling/building. 

The problems has existed through all versions of Xamarin Studio since the dawn of time. I haven't had the time or resources to report the problems earlier, but now it is such at big issue, that I need to address this.

I have attached a number of files with system description, screenshots and information from event log. Today I experienced Xamarin Studio go down six times in fourty minutes, with work lost as a result. Please pay this some attention.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Can you please attach the IDE log when XS crashes? You can find it using the Help -> Open Log Directory option in the main menu.
