Sample app to reproduce the problem

I have updated my Google Nexus 5 to Android 5 and Navigation Pages now render incorrectly. They have a slight duplication of rendering appearing at the bottom of the screen:


You can observe the duplication of the image and of the scroll bar.

Attached is an app that will exactly reproduce the problem.

I have only tested Android 5 on a Nexus 5.

This bug exists in Xamarin.Forms 1.2.3 and 1.3.

I'm sure you hear this a lot, but this bug will prevent any launch of our app as Android 5 begins to spread!

Please can anyone confirm this, it is a huge problem on new phones and I'm not the only one seeing it!

I am seeing the same problem on a Nexus 5 on Android 5.  Enclosing a page in a NavigationPage distorts the content.  I am using Xamarin.Forms 1.2.3
Comment 3 Lee Parkinson 2014-12-12 03:19:34 UTC
This seems to be fixed in the latest prerelease  Thanks :-)

I have checked this issue with the help of sample app attached in bug description and observed that this is working fine. I have checked this issue with Xamarin.Forms Please refer the screencast : http://www.screencast.com/t/Rw24KejqII

Note : I have checked this issue on both device Nexus 5(5.0) and emulator(android 5.0), and getting same behavior on both.

@joshcomley, Could you please check this issue with latest Xamarin.Forms prerelease version and feel free to reopen it again if you are still getting this issue. And also provide Adb Logcat, application output and Zip Xamarin Logs.
