Screenshot of the issue
I am using Xamarin Studio/Xamarin.Android, all from the stable channel.
The first time I try to display an AXML file in the Android Designer, I get the following error message:
The Layout could not be loaded: Width(0) and height(0) cannot be <=0
I can eventually get the file to render by closing down the designer and then double clicking on the AXML file again. I have had to do this several times before the designer would stop complain about the phantom error.
I know this is a valid AXML file as it's possible to run and deploy the application without any changes to the AXML file.
I can duplicate this fairly consistently in Xamarin.Android 4.10.1.

Main.AXML is that is causing the problem.
