Test project demonstrating the bug.

When setting margin on LayoutParams and using this params when adding view to a layout, its position will be margin * 1.5
i.e. when I set TopMargin = 100 then view's Top position = 150

	var layout = new FrameLayout(this);
	var text = new TextView(this);
	var lParams = new FrameLayout.LayoutParams(FrameLayout.LayoutParams.FillParent, FrameLayout.LayoutParams.FillParent);
	lParams.Gravity = GravityFlags.Center;
	lParams.TopMargin = 100;
	lParams.LeftMargin = 10;
	layout.AddView(text, lParams);

After view is displayed text.Top == 150 and text.Left == 15
Margin values stay unchanged (lParams.TopMargin == 100 and lParams.LeftMargin == 10)

Same code made in Java works.

Sorry, it was caused by
    lParams.Gravity = GravityFlags.Center;
