I have the same issue with XF.
When I reassign a view that contains a ScrollView, I get an exception on Android:
Java.Lang.IllegalStateException: The specified child already has a parent. You must call removeView() on the child's parent first.

Sample Reproduce Scroll View Bug
I created an app for Android and WP, that demos the bug in a few lines.
Description in the startscreen of the app.
The Android test case from comment 3 does indeed fail on Xamarin.Forms 188.8.131.5296, but it does _not_ fail on more recent versions (tested on Xamarin.Forms 184.108.40.20649).
The Windows Phone test case from comment 3 does still fail as of Xamarin.Forms 220.127.116.1149, and the top of the stack trace is the same as in the original test case from comment 0.
## Notes about the test case from comment 0
- It looks like the StackLayout within the ScrollView becomes "stale" after the first time it's used to set `System.Windows.Controls.ContentControl.Content` (in `ScrollViewRenderer.LoadContent()`).
- The second time `ScrollViewRenderer.LoadContent()` tries to set `System.Windows.Controls.ContentControl.Content` to the StackLayout, it fails.
- It's possible to hack around the problem re-creating the StackLayout and re-adding it to viewB's ScrollView each time the "View B" button is tapped.
## Related bug
Bug 26233 looks like it might be closely related, but that bug does not currently include a test case.

Should be fixed in 1.5.1-pre1
I have checked this issue with Xamarin.Forms 1.5.1-pre1 and its working fine.
Hence closing this issue.
