[MonoDevelop] Xamarin Studio freezes when selecting a .net solution or project

I need to modify one of the projects of an old .net solution developed
with MonoDevelop and previously edited and released from within
Xamarin Studio.

When I open he solution and just select any one of the projects (I
mean merely click on its name) Xamarin Studio hangs: the spinning disc
keeps spinning. Same result when selecting the solution name.

Maybe it is msbuild.exe that is hanging, although I never started a
build. But I do see two xamarin tasks: the studio app and msbuild.exe:

63369 /Applications/Xamarin Studio.app/Contents/MacOS/XamarinStudio
63384 /Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/Versions/3.2.0/bin/mono

Using the XS for iOS targets works fine.

I detected this problem after having switched to OSX Maverick, but it
might have been present without being detected before this upgrade.

Any suggestions about how to tackle this problem?
