Example demonstrating the problem

I have a StackLayout in a ListView's ViewCell. The StackLayout encloses 3 items: a text label on the left, an image on the right, and a filler in between the two to act as padding:

    Text="{Binding CellText}"
    FontAttributes="Bold" />
    HorizontalOptions="FillAndExpand" />
    Source="{Binding CellImage}"
    HorizontalOptions="End" />

If the text in the label is one line or less, everything works as expected. The image is right-aligned, the text is left-aligned, and the filler expands to fill the gap between them.

However, if the text in the label expands to occupy more than one line, the BoxView filler reverts to its default width, with the result that the image is pulled away from the right hand edge.

To see this in action, run the enclosed demo project. Tap the "Show List1" button to show one-line text in each cell. "Show List2" replaces one line's text with long text to cause the Label to wrap over 2 lines. This prevents the image from lining up at the right hand edge as I believe it should.

For comparison, each cell also shows a Grid (Olive fill) to compare with the StackLayout (Fuchsia fill).

I tested the attached project with Xamarin.Forms and I can no longer reproduce this issue. When the Label in the cell is wrapped, the Image now remains right aligned on both iOS and Android.
