           Summary: launcher for each activity class when using period

Description of Problem:
I have two activity classes in my MonoDroid (7818) project. I declared them in
AndroidManifest.xml file as shown here: http://pastebin.com/8R58azx2

When using period shorthand in activity element, like
<activity android:name=".SharpEd">, there will be two launchers after deploy in
android's application menu. If I used full class name like, <activity
android:name="cz.tomas.sharpEd.SharpEd">, there would be only one launcher as
The period shorthand should represent the package name.
The application is running fine though.

Steps to reproduce the problem:
1. declare multiple activities in project and AndroidManifest.xml
2. use period shorthand like described

Actual Results:
There are two launchers in android's application menu for both my activities
after deploy.

Expected Results:
There should be only one launcher for the activity with
<category android:name="android.intent.category.LAUNCHER" />
in intent-filter element

How often does this happen? 

Additional Information:
I'm using Windows 7 Pro x64, Java JDK Update 20 x64, in emulator is running
Android 2.1

In eclipse are shorthands working as expected.
