1.) Set package="comtestmedia" in android manifest
2.) build and run
3.) Open obj/Android/AndroidManifest.xml and you will see it is renamed to: package="comtestmedia.comtestmedia"
This requirement comes directly from Android package naming conventions rather than Java ones. Therefore they are more strict:
And although the application ID looks like a traditional Java package name, the naming rules for the application ID are a bit more restrictive:
It must have at least two segments (one or more dots).
Each segment must start with a letter.
All characters must be alphanumeric or an underscore [a-zA-Z0-9_].
Thus I believe this behavior is intended for Android package names. Please feel free to re-open otherwise.
