Description 999komi 2014-04-27 16:14:06 UTC
When nesting Android projects, I sometimes see a build "error" with blank text.  It doesn't actually stop the build from working, but it's still annoying.  

If you don't see it when opening the attached, try adding another level of nesting.  The chance that you will see it is high.  It appears to be related to the level of complication of the product.  Our production app shows it the vast majority of the time.

This is the project that sometimes produces the error.

I have checked this issue with attached project and follow the steps provided in bug description but I am unable to reproduce this issue.

Steps to reproduce
1. Open "attached project".
2. Build the attached project.
3. Add the portable class library and write the following code on Class1.cs
        public string S3
                return "This PCL1";
4. Add the reference of portable class library to project two,one and Nest.
5. Get the values of property of portable class library  in  Activity1.cs
    Ex: string s3= r1.s3;
6. Build and debug the project.

I observed that when I build the attached project, I am not getting any error then I try to add new PCL to the attached project and create a new property "s3" to the PCL and add PCL reference to the project and again build the project but I am unable to reproduce this issue.
I have also tried to add few more PCL and class libraries but project is running successfully and  I am unable to reproduce this issue.
