Description RobertN 2017-02-01 06:32:59 UTC
Xamarin.Android Version:

Create an Android Library project and add a Android.App.Service to it.

	[Service(Exported = true)]
	public class KeepAliveService : App.Service

Note: In this example I am exporting it as Chrome Tabs needs to be able to call it via an Intent extra for "android.support.customtabs.extra.KEEP_ALIVE"

Include the Android Library project into an Android App project, compile and inspect the generated project:

    <service android:exported="true" android:name="md53facaf42d4b267787bed3d0053111821.KeepAliveService" />
    <service android:name="md59f70a99687498e7ba187118950981d26.KeepAliveService" />

Two(?) Service entries were created, only first one is the correct entry:

   Class.FromType(typeof(KeepAliveService)).CanonicalName == "md53facaf42d4b267787bed3d0053111821.KeepAliveService"

Thank you for taking the time to submit the bug. We are unable to reproduce this issue. Please attach a reproduction to the bug by starting with a clean Xamarin.Android project and adding just the code necessary to demonstrate the issue.
