Description GouriKumari 2012-10-02 15:11:37 UTC
Steps to reproduce the issue:

1. Open MD
2. Create an MFA application
3. Go to Project Options. Add Android Manifest file
4. Add a few permissions AccessFineLocation, Internet by selecting the checkboxes
5. Close and open manifest file again
6. Selected uses-permission check boxes are unchecked. 
7. Again add the same uses-permission AccessFineLocation, Internet by selecting the checkboxes
8. Open AndroidManifest.xml in Properties folder. It will show duplicate entries of the same permissions.

Expected Result:
  Android manifest file must not allow duplicate permission entries

Actual Result:
  Selected permission entries are unchecked when you close and reopen the Android Manifest Xml in project options.
  Able to add duplicate entries to android manifest xml. 
MFA 4.2.7

Let's note that step 6 is also a bug - MonoDevelop should accurately read and display the contents of Manifest.
Comment 2 PJ 2012-10-02 15:15:31 UTC
Setting priority to normal and severity to major (to account for the fact that setting Android permissions is now essentially broken in MD).

Fixed and added tests ensuring it doesn't regress again.
