strange bug where xamarin studio seems to load the wrong file...
how to reproduce:
go to http://docs.xamarin.com/guides/android/platform_features/fragments/fragments_walkthrough and download the sample source FragmentsWalkthrough4.zip
Unzip it and open the .SLN file in xamarin studio.
Open the file "FragmentSample -> HoneycombFragments -> Resources -> Layout-Large -> activity_main.axml"
Now open the same file directly from the filesystem in a different editor.
If you compare both files, you can see, that the File in the other editor is larger and contains the details FrameLayout, while this part is missing in the file xamarin studio shows.
As this part explains, why the app behaves differently on tablet and phone, it is really confusing and took me hours to understand ;)
I'll add a screenshot which shows the behaviour

A screenshot would be helpful - that's what I get:
It looks like the file in any other editor.
Created attachment 4201 [details]
screenshot showing the problem
Ok, I just uploaded the screenshot.
if it shows the content as in your screenshot everything is OK, but here it wasn't.
Please note that I use the Xamarin Studio from "stable", which might be outdated by now?
I can repro the bug - it's the android designer. It seems it recreates the xml.
This issue is already fixed.
We have checked and now we are seeing same details for .axml file, if opened in XS editor or in other some editor like Text editor.
