Sample layout having the bug

I have this bug since a long time with all versions of Xamarin, both in Xamarin Studio and VS2012.

Current version: 4.7.9

When in design mode, and the scrollbar of the scrollview is used to scroll down, there is 50% chance for Xamarin studio to display an empty box (seems to be a kind of error box). In visual studio 2012 it freezes the designer. You can get it back by closing then reopening the axml file. Sometime it freezed VS2012 completely. You have to kill the process.

i have attached a sample layout. Open it in portrait mode, device 7in WSVGA (tablet).

Hi softlion,

I have tried to reproduce this issue after following the steps mentioned in bug description but not able to reproduce it, I am not getting scrollbar in designer when selecting device 7in WSVGA
(tablet) in designer.
