Fix Bing Maps control for slow connection

When there's only a slow network connection available, the Bing Maps control freezes when the user hits the hardware back button. This delay can take up to 30 seconds after which it can even happen that the app is terminated by the OS.

The bug has already been documented in multiple forum threads:

        Really hope Microsoft fixes this bug, since there seem to be no workaround for it, and it will make my app look really bad. Since the whole app will hang, and the whole phone can appear sluggish for a while after this happens.
