Test case, cleaned

Just for convenience, I've cleaned out the `packages` folder, and attached the test case directly on the bug report.

## Temporary workaround

In case it might be helpful as temporary workaround, you can use the "old trick" of moving initialization of various things into the `LayoutChildren()` override so that they run later:

> bool loaded = false;
> protected override void LayoutChildren(double x, double y, double width, double height)
> {
>     base.LayoutChildren(x, y, width, height);
>     if (!loaded) {
>         this.button2.IsVisible = false;
>         loaded = true;
>     }
> } 

(Remove the > greater-than symbols from the beginning of each line.)

Adding these lines to the `TestPage` class and removing the original `this.button2.IsVisible = false` line seemed to work around the problem successfully in my quick tests.

Marking as confirmed since I was able to reproduce the issue using the steps listed in comment 0.

Should be fixed in 1.4.4-pre1

I have checked this issue with X.F 1.4.4-pre1 and its working fine at my end.

Hence closing this issue.
