If I right click on a linked file in a project and try to remove it (not delete) Xamarin Studio locks up.

Here is the kill -QUIT

Mike: this looks like an issue with the TypeSystem?
Comment 2 Mike Krüger 2013-11-13 12:49:13 UTC
I think this is fixed in master.
Comment 3 Mike Krüger 2013-11-13 12:49:39 UTC
btw. are there cyclic dependencies inside the project ?
Comment 4 Stephen Shaw 2013-11-13 15:28:28 UTC
I tested a master build and this was fixed in there.

Probably because of this -> https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=16061

Y it's the same issue - I guess that you've a cyclic reference somewhere in the projects.

Today we have checked this issue with following build :

XS 4.2.3 (build 146) 76e7c7f6ca0e59052f2bb29f8179313510977377

Now this issue does not exist i.e. when we remove any linked file then XS does not locks up. As shown in Screencast : http://www.screencast.com/t/xUDVNmeq6

Hence closing this issue.
