this resolved bug and you do not yet see a matching new report.
Under Visual Studio, if a project is using a source control system that make files read-only if they're not checked out (e.g., Perforce), then attempting to edit the Android Manifest (when it's not checked out) using the project properties will generate the error "Access to path X:\Path\Properties\AndroidManifest.xml" is denied.
Steps to Reproduce:
(1) Create a new project
(2) Add the project to source control
(3) Submit the project so that all of the files are read-only
(4) Right click on the project in "Solution Explorer" and select "Properties"
(5) Select "Android Manifest"
(6) Try to change anything (e.g., click on one of the "Required permissions")
(7) Notice that it reports a message box that says that "Access to path X:\Path\Properties\AndroidManifest.xml is denied".
(8) Also notice you will not be able to revert the edit. Attempting to close the project properties will display the same message box.
The error message "Access to path X:\Path\Properties\AndroidManifest.xml is denied" is displayed.
AndroidManifest.xml is automatically checked out.
Build Date & Platform:
Monodroid 1.9.2 on Visual Studio 2010
Under Visual Studio, the normal behavior is to automatically check out files when they are edited. Visual Studio does this for source files and designers.

Should be fixed for the next release, 4.2.4 or 4.4. However I don't have TFS so I wasn't able to fully test the change to ensure it works.
