I can CONFIRM this behavior and I believe the main cause has to deal with the following bug:

https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=35208

I believe the next step is to write a spec on this issue to see if we can fix this common pain point in a future version of Xamarin.Android. For future reference, it is advised to explicitly set the `targetSdkVersion`. We should probably update our documentation on this subject as well as it also leaves users astray.
