Test application to show the issue.

If you have a page open with a ListView, then get a ContextAction to appear in the Android Toolbar (Contextual Action Bar), that bar will stay present when you navigate away from the page (say by pressing a button, switching tabs, etc).

This happened on every version of Forms I used, using FormsAppCompatActivity and an AppCompat theme.

Included is a sample that reproduces the issue for me. It is a page with a list and a button. Push and hold for a context action, then push the button to navigate. The action bar for the context action is still visible.

This problem seems to be still present in 2.3.2-pre1. This is my current hierarchy:
When I click outside the bounds of the content page, the action bar is still there. I either need to press the back button or the action button to hide it.
