The problem is that the attached project has an invalid .projitems file. The file is named BWNS.projitems and it should be BWNS.Shared.projitems, since it has to have the same name as the .shproj file. The android project is using the correct name to reference the projitems, so when the project is loaded, the reference is not found and it is ignored. I guess the files were renamed by hand.
I used the IDE to rename the project from BWNS to BWNS.Shared using Command R. (Mac)
The IDE should then rename all the required areas.
Thanks for a great product!
Fair enough, Rename has to be fixed.
Reproduced this on Xamarin Studio 5.2.1 (build 1). Renaming the missed .projitems as well as the reference in the shared .shproj fixed Android. Can this be prioritised as a quick fix? It should just be a matter of adding the .projitems the existing rename operation.

Already fixed in XS 6.0.
I have checked this issue with latest C7 build:
XamarinStudio-220.127.116.1174_c2c4170731bec0e8361f2cbe836334efb7a97324. Now this issue is working fine. Here is the screencast for the same: http://www.screencast.com/t/MLgdWsMM
Hence closing this issue.
