Thanks for sharing that thread. I'll also keep my eye out for other similar reports like that.
In case you want to follow, here's the Issue I filed with Xamarin to try and get to the bottom of the exception you're seeing: https://github.com/xamarin/Xamarin.Forms/issues/2835
. We know why it's failing, but what can be done about it remains to be seen.
The permanent fix would be to update UI for Xamarin's minimum required Xamarin.Forms version to 3.0, but we need to fully test it. The dev team has done a few tests on a XF 3.0 branch, but would need more rigorous Unit and UI tests before we could release this. Additionally, we need to consideration the ramifications of such a change for existing users.
