There may be better answers coming but if not.

I would either Partition the Hard drive and create a second bootable partition then use the older Xcode there.

Or Install it on a different Machine.

I support some apps on 10.6 and ran into similar problems and now use the older Xcode on another Machine. But have used Partitioning in the past for even older Xcodes.

In fact the Mac I am now has two Partitions for 10.10.x where one is for the Beta Version of Xcode.
