Odd, I don't get that. I just installed STS from SpringSource then added the update site, added the SDK Versions, added the plugins and that was all, everything worked as is.

So is there something wrong with the xml, maybe misspelt something or forgot to close a tag?

Does this happen if you do new Android Layout, then use the visual editor on that one?

Try re-installing Eclipse and the Android plugins if that doesn't help.
