Screencast of the "bad" behavior in 18.104.22.168
[XVS C6SR1] The Info.plist editor does not display any tabs if it is opened with a window width below a certain minimum
This is an "intensification" of Bug 38428. Bug 38428 itself is not a regression. But there is a new symptom in Cycle 6 – Service Release 1 where the tabs will stay hidden even when you close and reopen the PList editor.
Drag the `Info.plist` editor tab out into a floating window (Window -> Float), and then maximize that window.
(This will hopefully allow the editor tabs to reappear. I tried some brief tests with different screen resolutions, and in those test the workaround was effective down to 1280x720, but it was no longer effective at 1024x768.)
## Regression status
BAD: XamarinVS 22.214.171.124 (c7ebc0f) + Visual Studio 2013 Update 5
BAD: XamarinVS 126.96.36.199 (c7ebc0f) + Visual Studio 2015 Update 1
GOOD: XamarinVS 188.8.131.527 (1390b70) + Visual Studio 2013 Update 5
GOOD: XamarinVS 184.108.40.2067 (1390b70) + Visual Studio 2015 Update 1
(Note: the VS 2013 Windows test environment and VS 2015 Windows test environment are 2 separate installations of Windows.)
## Steps to replicate
1. Open Visual Studio and maximize the window.
2. Open an `Info.plist` file from an iOS project in the PList editor.
3. Resize the Solution Explorer window (or any window that's docked beside the PList editor window) so that it takes up most of the width of the whole outer VS window. This should trigger Bug 38428 so that the PList editor tabs disappear.
4. Once you have triggered Bug 38428, close the PList editor window, and then reopen it.
On XamarinVS 220.127.116.11, the PList editor tabs remain hidden.
## Expected results
On XamarinVS 18.104.22.1687, the PList editor tabs are shown.
(If you resize the window slightly at this point, you will again hit Bug 38428 and the tabs will disappear, but the important thing is that the tabs _were_ visible when the window first opened.)

For better searchability of this bug, the titles of the tabs that get hidden are:
"iPhone Icons", "Entitlements", "Map Integration", and "Background Modes"
