Very occasionally when I navigate 'back' from a page on Windows Phone I get an error with the below details. I think I have only seen this on real devices and not the simulator, but not sure. Defintely happens sometimes on a Lumia 820.
As far as I can tell from the stack trace, this seems to be a bug in Xamarin's forms library and not my code.
System.InvalidOperationExceptionElement is already the child of another element.

I have checked this issue but I am unable to reproduce this behavior, we may have to see if a developer can figure out what's going on from the stack trace. If you have a chance, it might also be helpful to include sample project, build info and logs (debug logs + IDE).
You can get build info from here:
Visual Studio => Help => About Microsoft Visual Studio => Copy Info
You can get IDE logs from here:
Visual Studio => Help => Zip Xamarin Logs
Thank you for taking the time to investigate, I appreciate that as it is an intermittent bug it is difficult to track down.
I haven't submitted a sample because it is intermittent and I cannot reliably reproduce it, so submitting a questionable sample seemed to do more harm than good. I was hoping an engineer could investigate based on the stack trace and figure it out.
Here is my VS build data in case it helps;
