So happened that I changed HDD in my macbook. I've reinstalled Studio, then as usually activated it via "offline" activation, and now when I run Studio, it gives me "Unhandled activation error" error. After logging in, it gives me another "Unhandled activation error":
"Information for support":
System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error.

I'd be glad to revoke existing license and add a new one, but we exceeded limit of license revoking (3 macbooks broken in 4 months).
P.S. Support on email doesn't answer me.

Xamarin Studio reinstall fixed issue.
Temporary issue in the activation servers, should be fixed. Thanks for the report!
Note that just logging back into XS again should restore your licenses.
It wasn't "temporary at all". It's repeated about 2 days with short "break" while I was able to use XS with offline activation (about 5hrs).
Moreover, it's happened again. I don't wont start my every work day with reinstall of XS.
The main difference between successful and unsuccessful activation is that login for successful one goes through browser and unsuccessful one through XS's dialog.
It persists over week already. Every working day I start from reinstalling Xamarin Studio.
Hi Folex, sorry to hear of the trouble.
I need a little bit more information to figure out what's causing the problem for you - there should be nothing about re-installing Xamarin Studio that would fix this issue for you, and I agree - re-installing every day would be a pain.
When you log in and log out of a 'broken' Xamarin Studio install, is the error you get the exact same as the original description?
Beyond additional description, we'll probably need to take a look at your most recent logs files. You can access the log directory through the Xamarin Studio -> Help -> Open Log Directory menu option.
Hopefully with that information we can see what's causing the issue for you. The other thing I'm wondering is whether or not the Xamarin Studio version is staying consistent. From comment 5 it seems like you're using both a 4.2 version of Xamarin Studio and a 4.0 version. The 4.0 version logs in through the browser, the 4.2 version logs in through the IDE.
Thanks for the information!
Well, it doesn't happen anymore.
I'll comment this bug if it happens again.

Xamarin Studio logs
I've deleted all logs, restarted XS and then tried to relogin. All of generated logs are in zip (except symlink).
Forgot to mention: It's always happens after installing any update (this time it was upgrade to XS 4.2.1)
I don't see anything useful in the log files. There was a brief period of time that this might have been an issue, but I can't reproduce anymore. Are you still having problems?
Yes, after every XS update, I have exactly same problem.
Well, I didn't install any updates in 2 months. Yesterday I've took risk and update my Xamarin Studio. Everything was OK till today. Now I have same error. I kinda hate you guys.
I can't seem to reproduce, through 3 months of upgrades. If you can provide logs again from that day, I'll happily look at them, but I haven't seen any reports of this happening to anyone else.
Well, it's finally fixed in 7.2.
