Sample Project


   Nested absolute layouts in ContentViews lead to buttons not being clickable on iOS only.

**Steps to Reproduce:**

   1. Run the attached project on an iOS Simulator.
   2. Try to click the button at the top. 

**Actual Results:**

   It's not clickable.

**Expected Results:**

   Should be able to click/tap that button and see the number increase. 

**Build Date & Platform:**

   iOS 9.2
   XF 2.1-pre3 (Also happens on 2.0.1)

Please also note that in the code example I provided if you uncomment the second example it will demonstrate that this problem also occurs if an AbsoluteLayout is the child of a parent AbsoluteLayout even if ContentViews aren't used.

Is this bug going to be fixed? It's been well over a year and I just stumbled upon this, which, in my case, also happens when using a Grid as a container.
