Test case

Reported on behalf of a user.

## Steps to reproduce
1. Open attached test project
2. Open one of the layout files in the designer.
3. Select the Nexus 7 device. Note that values are read from "sw500dp", but the selected layout is "Default".
4. Select the Nexus S device. Note that values are read from "sw330dp", but the selected layout is "Default".

## Results

Nexus 7
         Designer   Device or Emulator
Layout   default    sw500dp
Values   sw500dp    sw500dp

Nexus S
         Designer   Emulator
Layout   default    default
Values   sw330dp    default

Custom LG L9 device (4.7", 540 x 960)
         Designer   Device or Emulator
Layout   default    sw330dp
Values   sw500dp    sw330dp

## Expected results
The Layout and Values in the designer should match the Layout and Values at runtime.

## Version information
Xamarin.Android 4.10.1
Xamarin Studio  4.1.13

I should also note that the new designer interface is very nice! I think these non-standard "sw" sizes are just a corner case that behaved incorrectly in the old designer interface too. So this is not a regression.

Fixed in 4.2.
