Crash if using list view with NavigationDrawer

I run Xamarin Studio on Mac. I can also run SampleBrowser-Form project without any problem.
But when I try to write my own app using SfNavigationDrawer, the app always crash when it try to render NavigationDrawer. If I don't add ListView to DrawerContentView it will run fine.

My code:

    public partial class LogoutPage : ContentPage
        AuthenticationResult authenticationResult;

        public LogoutPage(AuthenticationResult result)
            authenticationResult = result;
            ObservableCollection<String> list = new ObservableCollection<string>();
            ListView listView = new ListView();
            listView.ItemsSource = list;

            var maincontent = new MainContentView_Default();
            StackLayout mainStack = new StackLayout();
            mainStack.Opacity = 1;
            mainStack.Orientation = StackOrientation.Vertical;
            mainStack.HeightRequest = 500;
            mainStack.BackgroundColor = Color.Black;
            //If I comment out below line, the app will run normal
            navigationDrawer.DrawerContentView = mainStack;
            navigationDrawer.ContentView = maincontent.Content;
            navigationDrawer.DrawerHeaderView = getDrawerheader();
            navigationDrawer.DrawerWidth = 200;
            navigationDrawer.DrawerHeaderHeight = 150;
            navigationDrawer.DrawerFooterHeight = 0;
            navigationDrawer.DrawerHeight = (float)App.ScreenHeight;
            navigationDrawer.Duration = 400;
            navigationDrawer.Position = Position.Left;
            navigationDrawer.Transition = Syncfusion.SfNavigationDrawer.XForms.Transition.SlideOnTop;
            navigationDrawer.TouchThreshold = 100;
        public View getDrawerheader()
            StackLayout headerLayout = new StackLayout();
            headerLayout.Orientation = StackOrientation.Vertical;
            headerLayout.BackgroundColor = Color.FromHex("#1aa1d6");
            headerLayout.VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.CenterAndExpand;
            headerLayout.HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.CenterAndExpand;
            headerLayout.HeightRequest = 200;
            headerLayout.WidthRequest = 275;
            Image emp = new Image();
            emp.Source = ImageSource.FromFile("user.png");
            emp.HeightRequest = 100;
            emp.WidthRequest = 70;
            emp.HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.CenterAndExpand;
            emp.VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center;
            emp.BackgroundColor = Color.FromHex("#1aa1d6");

            Label header = new Label();
            header.Text = "James Pollock";
            header.FontSize = 20;
            header.HeightRequest = 30;
            header.WidthRequest = 140;
            header.TextColor = Color.White;
            header.HorizontalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center;
            header.VerticalOptions = LayoutOptions.Center;
            header.BackgroundColor = Color.FromHex("#1aa1d6");
            return headerLayout;

    <navigation:SfNavigationDrawer BackgroundColor="White" x:Name="navigationDrawer" >

 Please advice me how to avoid the crash. Thank you.
