XF Listview on Android Marshmallow giving very large blank area before first item

PaulReadPaulRead GBMember ✭✭

Suddenly my app (in debug or release) on my Nexus 5 running Marshmallow has a massive (about 1 screen length in size) blank space before the first item in the list.

This same issue exists if I build and run:

The list view appears on the phone but you have to scroll it to see the first item

    This is resolved int eh next pre-release. We got caught a bit off-guard with a change in Android-M

    From which release is this fixed?

    I know that many bug fixes could not make it into 2.0.0 and I don't see this issue mentioned in the release notes, so I guess it will be addressed in 2.0.1?

    Great I'll remove my bodge around code and try again
