Description Luis Aguilera 2016-09-15 15:50:42 UTC
this bug will track the effort remaining for the 'full fix' as described in https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=43566#c15

Update per comment https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=43566#c17 (this is now the bug to track the "mitigation" fix).
Comment 2 Kyle White 2016-09-15 19:51:50 UTC
I have verified on master that the mitigation effort is effective. Prior to the fix the issue was 100% reproducible in my experience. With this fix, I cannot reproduce anymore, I tried opening the designer multiple (~4) times and my already running iOS10 simulator is remaining responsive. 

I will again verify the issue on the release branch once it's merged.
