Can you please attach a reproduction? I'm guessing how and where the delay is injected will affect whether this reproduces.

@kingces95 I've been able to repro this in 4.0-pre5. Setting the ItemsSource property after a 2 second delay causes a crash:

        protected override async void OnAppearing()

            await Task.Delay(2000);
            collectionView.ItemsSource = (BindingContext as MonkeysViewModel).Monkeys;

I tried all kinds of threading options, and marshalling to the UI thread (when appropriate) and it always happens.

Repro steps

  1. Run the attached sample (either iOS or Android).
  2. Browse to the EmptyViewLoadSimulationPage.
  3. Wait 2 seconds.

Actual result

Sample crashes.

Expected result.

Sample updates the CollectionView from an ObservableCollection.

@hartez I've retried this on 3.6 and 4.0-pre6 and the results are identical for both. On iOS a MonoTouchException occurs, as per the screenshot above. On Android it works fine.
