When using Xamarin Studio (and only this application) the majuscule key is probably misinterpreted. It adds an extra weird symbol (see screenshot)
When editing fields like plist file this makes the plist wrong format and cause crash of the application (see attached plist for example, edited with xamarin studio and corresponding screenshot. Identifier is the field to look at.)
When creating a new class, it also misinterpret that (even if not displayed). For example, the name of the class become My_Class instead of MyClass.

What is the "Majuscule" key? What keyboard layout are you using?
Left or right Maj key (the one with the up arrow)
I'm using the layout "French - Microsoft".
I've been working on fixing some input-related bugs. Would you mind testing this build for me and letting me know if it helps any with this issue?
Put this into C:\Program Files (x86)\GtkSharp/2.12\bin
(backup the file in that directory first, just in case)
I'm sorry, this is reported as a Mac issue and the input issues I've been working on were Win32. So please ignore my last comment.
Since my keyboard is a MS one, it might have an impact. Do you have a binary I can test?
Apparently, last update resolved the bug.
As per Antoine's comment 8, this issue is resolved.
Hence closing this issue.
Bug reappeared in latest update of Xamarin Studio (5.10, build 799) and it's extremely painful to create new files.
I installed the preview of Xamarin Studio 6 (build 1271) and the problem is, as expected, there as well. (likely to be in gdk?)
Bug is no longer present in Xamarin Studio 6.0 Build 4520.
As per comment 14 this issue is no longer present with XS 6.0(build 4520). So I am closing this issue.
