Error when re-entering page - UWP

I'm not 100% sure this is a problem with SfDigitalGauge. I have a cross-platform PCL app and the problem is occurring when I run the UWP version. I have a page with several SfDigitalGauges and also an SfDataGrid and some simple labels. I'm arranging contents with stacklayouts and grids. 

The first time into the page everything is ok, but if I navigate to another page (I have 5 tabbed pages of which this one is 2nd in order) and come back into it, I get the following error.

{System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
   at Xamarin.Forms.Platform.UWP.ImageRenderer.UpdateAspect()
   at Xamarin.Forms.Platform.UWP.ImageRenderer.d__3.MoveNext()
--- End of stack trace from previous location where exception was thrown ---
   at System.Runtime.CompilerServices.AsyncMethodBuilderCore.<>c.b__6_0(Object state)
   at System.Threading.WinRTSynchronizationContext.Invoker.InvokeCore()}

I know it's vague at this stage but I was wondering if this gave any immediate clues.

My UWP app MainPage constructor looks like this:

        public MainPage()

            LoadApplication(new App1.App());

The Android version runs fine in an emulator. I'm running the UWP version on the local machine as the simulator gives me BSOD's.

Please let me know what more info I can provide. Thanks.

edit: ok I managed to get a run on the Simulator, with the same result.

edit 2: Just realized it's in a Xamarin.Forms DLL but anyway I'll leave this here and also post something on the Xamarin forum.

EDIT: Well, I installed  pre-release version, and I no longer have the crashing problem.. For now I'll stick with this.


Nuget is not telling me of any updates. As far as I can tell I'm up to date.

I'm using xamarin.forms

My portable project packages:

My UWP packages:
