Test Android App

To reproduce:

1) Create a C# Android project that references an old version of a Xamarin Component (Attached a test project which references Azure Mobile Services 1.3.0)
2) Close the solution and re-open it in Visual Studio.
3) See that an update for the Xamarin Component is available.
4) In Solution Explorer use the Update menu to update the Component.
5) Save the project.

Expected result:

XamarinComponentReference has new version in project file.
New assemblies for the component are referenced by the project.

Actual result:

XamarinComponentReference has new version in project file.
The assemblies from the old component are still referenced. Hint paths are not modified.

This was reproduced in Visual Studio 2010 with Xamarin 3.9.236.0 (d6a2cae) installed.
It has also been reproduced in Visual Studio 2013 on the forums:
