Freshly created Web Application
Xamarin Studio freezes immediately after creating a new Web Application. The Default.aspx file is highlighted and the rainbow disc starts spinning and does not stop anymore.
I attach the project, but this happens as well for any existing .net project that I open.
I am using the latest XS 4.0.13 (build 38).
I just tried to reopen this blank project, and it succeeded, albeit complaining that button1 does not have a Text member!
So I closed XS and restarted it to verify.
I open the project and the cursor sits on the solution name. Hitting down arrow gets the cursor spinning again without stopping. I had to kill it again.
For what it's worth: when I try to open an old multi-project sloution and select one of the projects, the disk also starts spinning. At that point msbuild.exe also seems to be running:
2658 /Applications/Xamarin Studio.app/Contents/MacOS/XamarinStudio
2666 /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/3.2.0/bin/mono /Applications/Xamarin Studio.app/Contents/MacOS/lib/monodevelop/bin/MSBuild/4.0/MonoDevelop.Projects.Formats.MSBuild.exe
With the freshly created Web Application the MSBuild is not running.
For sake of completeness: ios apps build and run as expected without problems.
Could you try with the 22.214.171.124 beta?
Same problem (I only installed the beta of XS, not of the framework)
Can you please run "killall -QUIT XamarinStudio" when XS is hung, then find and attach the log file from ~/Library/Logs/XamarinStudio-4.0?

Log after killing hanging XS
Thanks, it's a known bug in the vi mode that's been fixed already.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of bug 15596 ***
Disabling vi mode gets rid of the problem.
