App doesn't reload from "Recent Apps" drawer


I am developing a Xamarin.Android app right now, and I have discovered something strange: When Itap my home button to put my app in the background and then tap on it in the recent apps screen (holding home button on my phone) it doesn't open.

Sometimes it opens after I tap it a second time, sometimes it doesn't open at all.

The Activity shown when I background the app is a very simple data entry page with three edit texts and an image.

Any fix for this? It's really annoying.

PS: Using the latest stable Xamarin.Android from nuget and a shared project.

    Can you make sure the app is still running and did not crash? Try repeat your steps with attached debugger.

    I do have the debugger running, it displays nothing, no crash, no exception, no break, the App seemingly just keeps running...
