Description Tomas 2013-11-21 08:25:10 UTC
After the 4.10.x update there seems to be a problem with Java Activation (as described here http://docs.xamarin.com/guides/android/advanced_topics/architecture/#4.1.java-activation)

Specifically, event #11, the other constructor is not being executed.

Sample code:
public abstract class DeviceWidget : RelativeLayout
	public DeviceWidget(Context context) : base (context)

	public DeviceWidget(Context context, IAttributeSet attrs) : base (context, attrs)

	public DeviceWidget(Context context, IAttributeSet attrs, int defStyle) : base (context, attrs, defStyle)

	protected DeviceWidget(IntPtr handle, JniHandleOwnership owner) : base(handle, owner)

	private void InitDeviceWidget()
		// This is never called

	protected override int[] OnCreateDrawableState(int extraSpace)
		// This method is the reason we need to define the protected constructor
