I have run the following code snippet as a Xamarin PCL code that targets .NET4.5, Android, Windows phone 8.1(profile 111).
System.Net.Http.HttpClient v0 = new System.Net.Http.HttpClient();
System.TimeSpan v2 = new System.TimeSpan(0, 0, 0);
((System.Net.Http.HttpClient)v0).Timeout = (System.TimeSpan)v2 ;
The expected result after executing the 3rd line should be an ArgumentOutOfRangeException since the timeout property is being set to 0 (based on MSDN documentation http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.net.http.httpclient.timeout%28v=vs.110%29.aspx). This expected behavior occurs when the program is run for Windows phone 8.1 and .NET4.5.
However, when this code snippet is ran for Android, No exception is thrown. Which is not the expected behavior and differs from the Windows phone 8.1 and .NET4.5 versions.
I've ran this on Visual Studio 2013 with the following Xamarin version:
Version: 4.16.0 (Business Edition)
Java SDK: C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jdk1.6.0_39
The test was conducted on an Android 4.0.3 emulator
I have checked this issue but I am unable to reproduce this issue.
To reproduce this behavior I have created a portable library project and added the following code in PCL project
>System.Net.Http.HttpClient v0 = new System.Net.Http.HttpClient();
>System.TimeSpan v2 = new System.TimeSpan(0, 0, 0);
>((System.Net.Http.HttpClient)v0).Timeout = (System.TimeSpan)v2 ;
I have also added a android project to the same solution and call the PCL code from android project. I observed that I am not getting any error/exception. Application is working fine.
I have also tried the same with Xamarin.Forms app and forms application is also working fine.
Could you please provide sample application,build info and logs (IDE + debug)? So that we can reproduce this behavior at our end.
You can get build info from here:
Microsoft Visual Studio => Help => About Microsoft Visual studio => Copy Info
You can get IDE logs from here:

I am having a timeout issue with Profile 111 building an iOS app. No matter what value I set the timeout to be it does not honour it and uses the default timeout. What is the current state of this bug? Is it getting worked on?
It throws the ArgumentOutOfRangeException for values less than 0, but "works" for 0. Per https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.net.http.httpclient.timeout(v=vs.110).aspx, the exception should be thrown for values less than or equal to 0, not just less than 0.
