I haven't been able to reproduce this so far. Just to confirm, you didn't experience this with 15.3? Can you attach the recent logs from Help > Xamarin so we can look into this further? After attaching the logs go ahead and set this back to NEW, thanks!

I did not see this with 15.3. It is also reported by a number of users on the forums.
Do you happen to have the Visual Studio 2017 Preview  installed? I'm using the latest Visual Studio 2017 version 15.5 Preview 2 and am unable to reproduce this issue. We had some fixes land after 15.4 shipped that should fix this issue. Could you give it a try with that build?
I have 15.4.2 installed.
This still happens with 15.4.5
