Reproduceable Solution

Navigate to a child page, display ContextActions on a ListView, close the child page (navigating back to the parent page) while ContextActions are still being shown.  Go to any other ListView on any other page and no ContextActions will ever be shown again.  I'm guessing there is only a single instance of the ContextActions menu which is shared across all ListViews, and if its still attached to the page when that page is destroyed then it gets destroyed along with it - just a guess.

Very simple to reproduce, see attached solution.

Tested Hardware & Development Versions:
  iPhone 6 with iOS 10.3.1
  Windows 10 Enterprise
  Microsoft Visual Studio Community 2017: Version 15.2 (26430.12) Release
  Microsoft .NET Framework: Version 4.6.01586
  Xamarin: (1be4f0c)
  Xamarin.iOS and Xamarin.Mac SDK: (4cffddf)

Code Setup:
  1) create a NavigationPage with the root page containing a button to open a second page
  2) on second page display a ListView with some items in it and some ContextActions
  3) run the app on iOS

Steps to Reproduce:
  1) run app: main page is shown
  2) click Show List button: list page with ListView is shown
  3) swipe list item: ContextActions are shown
  4) (do not close ContextActions) click the Back navigation link to close the list page
  5) root page is shown again
  6) click Show List button: list page with ListView is shown
  7) swipe list item...
  8) ContextActions are shown
  8) nothing happens, no ContextActions are ever shown again on any other ListView anywhere in the App ever again.

Please correct me if I am mistaken, but I don't believe this has been fixed and is noted in the duplicated bug 55588 above:

According to that bug, this is suppose to be fixed in Pull Request 885:

And according to that pull request it was released in version

I have downloaded that "fixed" version from nuget into my project, built and run my app, I still experience the above issue/bug.

Please let me know if I am missing a step and how I can then properly test that this has fixed my bug; otherwise I ask you please re-open my bug.
