You should read this blog post first: 

You should not expect support for a few months.

As for your problem, maybe there is something else retaining your
ViewController. One thing I did is:
 1- Isolate one ViewController in a new project.
 2- Put a Console.WriteLine in my ViewController's finalizer.
 3- Disable code until the finalizer is called

To test my code, I just push/pop the ViewController on a NavigationController.
After 2-3 times the finalizer should be called if nothing is retaining it. Note
that if you call ViewController.Dispose() the finalizer won't be called

It's a bit tedious, but it can help.
