Description Sebastien NUSSBAUMER 2013-03-12 05:50:59 UTC
Repro : 
 1. Create a new Android Application
 2. In the Main activity, in OnCreate, do a Console.WriteLine("Configuré");
 3. Launch the application
 4. In the application output you see "Configur??"
 5. Same problem if you use Android.Util.Log.Info("Configuré") and look at the "Android Log" panel

According to Jonhatan Pryor it's a bug in the IDE but didn't find if here, so I log it so it doesn't get forgotten.
