In a Master-Detail Page hosted in a Navigation Page with a Navigation Page set as the Detail, inserting a page before the Navigation Page's current page and calling PopToRootAsync during OnAppearing causes the Detail page contents to disappear on iOS phone devices. This behvior also occurs on iOS tablet devices if the Master-Detail Page's MasterBehavior property is set to MasterBehavior.Split. This behavior does not occur on tablets with MasterBehavior.Popover.
This all works fine on Android.
Steps to reproduce:
1. Run the attached repro project
2. Click "Test with NavigationPage".
The detail section of the new page will display briefly, then disappear.

Partially updated repro for VS2017 for Mac, XF 18.104.22.1682
The important thing is that the repro builds in VS2017 for Mac now, and it is still valid for the iOS build, showing the same problem that was originally reported.
I am tracking related bad behavior with master/detail pages. This bug report is similar to one that I need to build a repro for, but a little different. In the course of determining the differences, I updated it to build for iOS using Visual Studio for Mac 2017, which is not compatible with Xamarin.Forms 2.3.0, as you are well aware.
I had to fix some bad references to the packages directory, which were specified with "..\..\packages", which need to be "..\packages" for the structure of the solution.
The Droid project does not build at all - it appears to reference private symbols that aren't present in the new XF, if I had to guess (I didn't look at that for long).
