Comment 2 Miguel de Icaza [MSFT] 2012-01-09 15:37:00 UTC
The samples are developed and tested against a single API.

Changing the API level might be interesting for some of our users, but it is not something that we should be testing for.

The reason is that API level changes actually change the runtime and might actually have a different behavior.   For example, font sizes and layouts might have changed between versions (the default font changed between Honeycomb and ICS), so this explains the problem.

We can not make every sample run on every API level.   So this is basically a side effect of Android's API levels.
