Immediate workaround is to add a very slight delay.
Comment 2 Rui Marinho 2016-03-29 17:19:36 UTC
Should be fixed in 2.2-pre1
Comment 3 Parmendra Kumar 2016-04-26 19:00:23 UTC
I have checked this issue and I am not able to reproduce this issue with Xamarin.Forms 2.2.0-pre4 and its working fine.

Hence closing this issue.
