This bug definitely is a regression, there are several times that this sample test case has passed, here's one such example (from a 4.7 build, even).

Comment 2 Jonathan Pryor 2013-07-15 16:19:21 UTC
I'm unable to reproduce this; the SlidingMenuExample starts up and runs normally for me.

What's odd is the Logcat output: there's no sign that the process was ever started. Normally (always?), logcat will contain messages for each activities that it's tarting, e.g. a message for `SlidingMenuExample.SlidingMenuExample/slidingmenuexample.Activity1`. There is no message in Logcat containing "slide", nor is there any mention of "mono", or anything else I'd expect.
Comment 3 PJ 2013-07-15 17:01:18 UTC
Yeah, the fact that they're also seeing it on 4.6.8 here makes it seem like there's a configuration issue.

Mohit can you still reproduce this?

For another angle, PeterC can you reproduce on your S4, it was listed as one of the failed devices?
Comment 4 Mohit Kheterpal 2013-07-16 06:50:23 UTC
Today we have checked this issue on following builds :

VS 2010 / 2012
X.Android 4.8.00004

Device info :
Samsung S4 : 4.2.2
HTC One : 4.0.3

We are able to deploy and run both applications (SlidingMenuExample and PageViewIndicator)on device and Emulator successfully.

Hence Closing this issue. Changing its status to verified.
Comment 5 PJ 2013-07-16 10:07:56 UTC
This kind of result is troubling to me. While it's good that you can no longer reproduce, I'm worried that there was a legitimate bug that you just cannot reproduce any longer.

Not sure what we can do about this - I can't reproduce either.
