sample projects demonstrating leak

Similar to bug 40955, there seems to be a memory leak when a listview is embedded in a frame using FormsAppCompatActivity.

Attached are two projects(following from 40955) that have, in the XAML a listview embedded in a frame on the ToDoList.xaml markup.  The Contacts page is the same as ToDoList, but without <Frame><ListView/></Frame>.  Contacts is garbage collected, ToDoList is not.

The same configuration using FormsApplicationActivity creates correct behavior (ToDoList is garbage collected).

Using XF 2.3.1
Xamarin 4.1
VS 2015 U3

Should be fixed in 2.3.2-pre1. Thank you!

I have checked this issue with Xamarin.Forms 2.3.2-pre1 and Its working fine.

Hence closing this issue.
