[Cycle 7] Android designer "Design" tab name changes to "Designer" after "Source" tab is selected




## Regression status: regression in Cycle 7

BAD:    XamarinVS 4.1.0.313 (514438c)
BETTER: XamarinVS 4.0.3.214 (0dd817c)




## Steps to replicate

1. Create a new "Visual C# > Android > Blank App (Android)" solution.

2. Double-click the "Resources\layout\Main.axml" file to open it in the Android designer.

3. Select the "Source" tab.




## BAD Results (on XamarinVS 4.1.0)

The label of the "Design" tab _changes_ to "Designer" after the "Source" tab is selected.




## BETTER Results (on XamarinVS 4.0.3)

The label of the "Design" tab _stays_ as "Design" after the "Source" tab is selected.

*But* please also see the next section about "GOOD" results.




## GOOD Results for cross-IDE consistency (in Xamarin Studio on Mac).

In both Xamarin Studio 5.11 and Xamarin Studio 6.0 on Mac, the tab is always labeled "Designer". For cross-IDE consistency, it would probably be best to use the text "Designer" at all times in Visual Studio.




## Additional environment info

For testing expediency, I only checked in the one environment where  I happened to first see the issue: VS 2013 Update 3. But I'm pretty sure it will affect any version of VS 2012, 2013, or 2015.

Window 8.1 (64-bit) in VMWare Fusion.
