My Android Xamarin.Forms application uses a Navigation stack to display various views, I often have a list on a screen (A) that once a cell is clicked I push onto the stack a new screen (B), the user completes some form fields and then clicks a button to save. Once they click the 'save' button a task is created on the thread pool to asynchronously perform some work (no async/await and no dependency on any UI) and the view is popped back to screen (A).
Once the task is completed, it fires a simple event using the PubSub library, on the UI thread, so screen (A) has the opportunity to refresh from the local database and it does.
The problem is that when I go to drag the updated list on screen (A), the app crashes with an ObjectDisposedException intermittently (like 1 in 50 times)...

I'm not sure why it says that I cannot access a disposed object, I'm interacting with a list with a gesture detector, it's on-screen, so it's not disposed.
Is this a bug in Xamarin.Forms?
On a similar note, if I modify an MVVP property that notifies listeners that a property has changed (I always check it's on the UI thread first), then if that's bound to a Xamarin.Forms list but it's not currently on-screen, presumably Xamarin.Forms will not barf ? After-All it's just off-screen and should still bind okay?
