screen shot fo GC errors - Android

In our Android Forms app, we run into this error often, can't determine what is causing it. The attached screen shot shows the LogCat. What you see is the same over and over again infinitely, the scrolling never stopped with the same GC errors. 

Visual Studio becomes unresponsive as well, it has to be killed with Task Manager.

Some more info:

I narrowed the error to my call to:

     var choice = await DisplayActionSheet(Words.Select, Words.OK, Words.Cancel, GetAccounts());

If I changed it to:

     _accountList = GetAccounts(); //!!!!PULLED IT OUT!!!!!!
     var choice = await DisplayActionSheet(Words.Select, Words.OK, Words.Cancel, _accountList );

and made _accountList a class level variable, then it works.

Where GetAccounts() is just a simple method:

        public string[] GetAccounts()
            return new[]

I can't reproduce this, we may have to see if a developer can figure out what's going on here. If you have a chance, it might also be helpful to include sample application, build info, IDE and device logs.

You can provide required info form here:

1. Build Info:  
Open Visual Studio=> Help=> About Microsoft Visual Studio => Copy Info 

2. For  IDE logs:
Open Visual Studio=> Help=> Zip Xamarin Logs 

3. For device logs:  Adb logcat/device logcat
