According to http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6738328/shouldoverrideurlloading-in-webview-for-android-not-running ShouldOverrideUrlLoading() is not always called. So after one failure navigationResult is never reseted to WebNavigationResult.Success. So any page loads always return WebNavigationResult.Failure to WebView.Navigated handlers.

Looks like ShouldOverrideUrlLoading was marked obsolete.
