Xamarin.Mac project crashes at startup, what am I doing wrong ?


I downloaded Xamarin Studio (4.0.1), and created a new Xamarin.Mac project via the template. Without changing any code, I try to run the app. It immediately crashes with EXC_BAD_ACCESS (even before the debugger can attach). These are the details from the error report:

Exception Type:  EXC_BAD_ACCESS (SIGSEGV) Exception Codes: KERN_INVALID_ADDRESS at 0x000000008fe01030

Backtrace not available

What am I doing wrong, and how can I make the project work ? Is there anything obvious I should check ?
