When setting an Image.Source to a UriImageSource with caching enabled, image never shows up. When disabling caching with:
`uriImageSource.CachingEnabled = false;`
then the image appears most of the time, but not always.
Screencast (iOS simulator): http://screencast.com/t/HxSp0P4O
In the screencast, the first time I launch the app it is with caching enabled. The image never appears. I then disable caching and re-luanch the app. The first 3 times I re-launch, the image appears but fails to show the 4th time I re-launch the app.
There is a forum post about this as well, but on the thread one poster resolved the issue by disabling caching for the UriImageSource but did not note if the issue still occurred sometimes as was reported in the desk case from the customer reporting this issue to support. (link in private comment below).
The reporting customer also noted the issue occurred on Android and iOS, device or simulator, but I was only able to reproduce on iOS.
## Steps to reproduce
1. Open the attached test project in XS (Current Stable builds)
2. Set the iOS project as the startup project.
3. Launch to an iOS device or simulator (tested on iPhone 6 and 6s/iOS 9.1 simulators)
Expected result: Two identical images should be displayed, one under label "Web" and another under label "Local"
Actual result: Only local image is displayed.
4. Now uncomment line 13 `uriImageSource.CachingEnabled = false;` in TestImage.cs in the TestImage project
5. Re-launch app (repeat until issue occurs)
Expected result: Web image will always show.
Actual result: Occasionally the image does not show (See above screencast). In my tests, sometimes I had to re-launch ten times to get the issue to occur.
I am not able to reproduce this issue using an image from my own personal web server, so it might be a URL parsing issue? The URL that is showing this issue in the test project has a colon in it, whereas there is no colon in the URL for the image on my personal web server.

Oops, forgot to add link to forum post: https://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/19828/xamarin-forms-image-not-picking-up-a-remote-image-on-ios
Any news on this bug ?
I ran this project without alteration on iPhone 6 9.3 simulators and iPhone 6 10.2 device, and the images both appeared every time, with or without the caching disabled. I wonder if this was an issue with the simulators or an upstream issue resolved in a later version of Xamarin.iOS...?
In any case, if you continue to experience this issue, please reopen this report with additional information.
