4 screen shots showing the problem

I've create an alternative layout (normal screen size and landscape mode) and added to the alternative layout list.
The default layout is selected and shown on the designer screen.
If I select the new layout (named as normal-land), the preview is Ok, but if I select back the Default layout, the designer previews the screen with errors of size, resolution and positioning of the views. The same occurs from now on if I select the new layout (normal-land). The only way to see them correct again is closing my Main.xaml and opening it again to reload the preview.
Obs1: It happens every time. Already restarted Xamarin Studio and the problem persists.
Obs2: I'm attaching some pictures of the problem.
