Today during the "What's New in Xamarin.Forms 1.3" webinar, I learned that in 1.3 Xamarin.Forms changed the default grid sizing from AUTO to STAR.  This is the culprit.

Changing the row definition of my grid fixed the issue.

var rowDefinition = new RowDefinition();

var rowDefinition = new RowDefinition
     Height = new GridLength(1, GridUnitType.Auto)

This bug can be closed.
