screenshot showing error messages

Android project (Tasky example) that previously compiled on Xamarin Studio for Windows.
Compilation fails in latest release. It seems like the compiler is ignoring the BuildAction:AndroidResource

Changing *JUST* /Resources/values/Strings.xml to BuildAction:EmbeddedResource fixes the build.

This was a regression introduced by the fix for https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1077. The commits have been reverted and a hotfix will be released soon.
