This code in MonoAndroidFlavouredProject is deadlock prone:
> AsyncManager.Run (designerProject.DisposeAsync);
> catch (Exception e)
> tracer.Error(e, e.Message);
AsyncManager is not doing what we think. It is blocking the main loop, thus preventing tasks from being able to complete if they need to sync to the main thread for whatever reason. The result is a deadlock.
An example of the deadlock is: https://gist.github.com/alanmcgovern/77e16acf64ca7629332139296a804eb6
The stack trace is useful, but I'd appreciate some repro steps. It seems DisposeDesignerProject is being called right after a CreateProject, so I assume there's an active Android designer session and you're creating another new project while it's open? Does it matter what kind of new project it is?
Fixed in version 188.8.131.525 (cycle9)
