Every time I finish a debug session in the simulator, an lldb process is left running on my machine. Eventually, I have so many I need to either kill them all or restart my machine.
Can you provide us with all the software version information ?
The easiest way to get exact version information is to use the "Xamarin Studio" menu, "About Xamarin Studio" item, "Show Details" button and copy/paste the version informations (you can use the "Copy Information" button).

A few more questions:
* Do the lldb processes go away if you quit Xamarin Studio and/or the iOS Simulator?
* Can you execute the following (with a few lldb processes running) in a Terminal and attach the output:
* Does this happen with any iOS project, or just one in particular (this is easy to test by just creating a new project from a template)?
* Is anything printed to your Mac's Console app (you can find it in Applications/Utilities/Console.app) with the "All Messages" node selected on the left?

Yes. Starting with no lldb processes, I created a fresh project using master/detail iOS template. Immediately ran and stopped several times and had 3 lldb processes.

Started with a clean console. Started the same project mentioned above, immediately stopped it. Copied console output and also attached it.

Output of ps ajx

since when do we start lldb? is lldb starting due to a runtime crash?
lldb is started due to mtouch-64 hitting an abort in native (Objective-C) code.
I'll look into it.
mtouch will no longer try to print stack traces when it crashes using gdb/lldb.
May I ask if this has been fixed in a recent release as I have essentially the same issue?
@Sky, it's part of the upcoming 7.4.0 release (presently in beta).
