Xcode debug output showing hang with Xcode 8 and 4.6.0.165

See https://github.com/mcneel/mono-sierra-fork for the test program.

Compile the program with Xcode 7 on OS X El Capitan.  It creates both mono-sierra-fork and EmbedTest.exe in the Xcode destination build directory.  When copying the mono-sierra-fork executable to another location, also copy EmbedTest.exe to the same location.

Running this Mac executable mono-sierra-fork finishes correctly when run from inside Xcode 7 on OS X El Capitan.
Running this Mac executable mono-sierra-fork finishes correctly when run from the command line on OS X El Capitan.
Running this Mac executable mono-sierra-fork finishes correctly when run from the command line on macOS Sierra.



Compile the program with Xcode 8 on macOS Sierra.  It creates both mono-sierra-fork and EmbedTest.exe in the Xcode destination build directory.  When copying the mono-sierra-fork executable to another location, also copy EmbedTest.exe to the same location.

Running this Mac executable mono-sierra-fork finishes correctly when run from the command line on macOS Sierra.
Running this Mac executable mono-sierra-fork hangs when run from inside Xcode 8 on macOS Sierra.

The Xcode debug output log is attached.

This test requires that /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework is installed.  Version 4.6.0.165 was used when testing on Sierra. Version 4.4.2 was tested on El Capitan and Sierra with the same results.

Alexis ran this with XCode 7.3.1 on Sierra 10.12 (16A304a) and did not reproduce the problem. He is going to try again with XCode 8 and see if that makes it reproduce.

Hi, can you still reproduce with latest Mono? Thank you
