The developer intent was probably to make the section-header not conflict with the section-index that appears on iOS when using GroupShortNameBinding. 

It looks like the section-header X coordinate increased when the width is decreased to accommodate the section-index.

I tried to reproduce this issue, but not able to reproduce this. Could you please provide us small sample application that reproduce this issue.  Also if possible please attach the logs and full environment info, that would be very helpful to investigate this issue at our end.

You can get IDE logs and environment Info from here:-

You can use any code. For example Jesse's code in this forum thread: http://forums.xamarin.com/discussion/comment/102608/#Comment_102608

Look at Jesse's opening post. Notice how the "A" and the "J", "K", "L" shortcuts are partly overlapped by the greyish rectangle in Jesses's screenshot.

It the same problem I'm referring to in this bug.

This is how iOS works actually, that is a transparent overlay.
