I suspect this is a duplicate of Bug 32988.

One way to check if this is indeed a duplicate of Bug 32988 would be to downgrade the customer's example project temporarily to Xamarin.Forms 1.4.3 and see if the problem stops. If the problem does stop, this can be marked as a duplicate of Bug 32988.

I will mark the bug as "need info" pending that test.

(Side note: the links attached to this bug privately so far are just version information. No sample project is attached yet.)

Ah ha. I found the link for the full test case in the original email support case. The problem does indeed stop if I downgrade the project to Xamarin.Forms and start again if I upgrade to Xamarin.Forms 1.4, so the behavior matches Bug 32988 (and the closely related Bug 33181).

I will accordingly mark this bug as a duplicate.
