Description Sergio Paganoni 2014-12-19 05:38:37 UTC
As described by Dan Steck and confirmed by Jason Smith in the Xamarin forum: http://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/29405/xamarin-forms-1-3-0-pre-release-3/p1

"I was having a stack overflow exception with the "OnBackButtonPressed()" method on a Tabbed page returning to another tabbed page. I just upgraded to 1.3.0 pre3 from 1.2.3. It was happening on both Android and Windows Phone."

Workaround suggested:
        protected override bool OnBackButtonPressed()
            return true;

I have checked this issue but I am unable to reproduce this behavior.

When I use the "OnBackButtonPressed()" method on a Tabbed page returning to another tabbed page. I observed that I am not getting any exception or error.

Could you please provide sample application and build info? So that we can reproduce this issue at our end.

You can provide build info from here:
