CSS Stylesheet doesn't automatically reload when included in App.xaml

See original GitHub issue

Using the sample app, if we move the StyleSheet reference from the page*.xaml files into the App.xaml file, changes to the CSS do are not reloaded.

To replicate, on a Windows Android Simulator, I loaded the sample app, navigated to Thanos, then changed the .TeamLabel color and saved. Notice the color does not change.

If I hit the back button. Then tap on Thanos again, the color change is now visible.

Remove line from Pages xaml files:

<StyleSheet Source="../Assets/styles.css" />

App.xaml file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<Application xmlns="" xmlns:x="" x:Class="Xamarin.Forms.HotReload.Sample.App">
        <StyleSheet Source="Assets/styles.css" />
            <Color x:Key="CellTitleColor">White</Color>
