Comment 2 Mohit Kheterpal 2014-04-29 14:45:12 UTC
Regression Status : Regression. This issue is working fine with XS 4.2.2 (build 2)
Comment 3 PJ 2014-04-29 15:48:19 UTC
This is an old bug in MSBuild targets according to Mhutch. That would make this an issue with the Android build, not XS. Mohit, are you sure you checked it with the same Android version installed? 

Either way, it seems like this has regressed recently from comment 2. I'm going to NEEDINFO for Mohit to investigate further.
