Label has wrapped correctly, but the containing view height is not calculated correctly

This view shows a problem with the word wrap of the label "Motor limiters and foldbacks"

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>


      <Style x:Key="OverviewSectionLabel" TargetType="Label">
        <Setter Property="FontSize" Value="Large"></Setter>
        <Setter Property="FontAttributes" Value="Bold"></Setter>

      <ColumnDefinition Width="*"></ColumnDefinition>
      <ColumnDefinition Width="5*"></ColumnDefinition>
      <RowDefinition Height="Auto"></RowDefinition>

    <RelativeLayout HorizontalOptions="Center" VerticalOptions="Center" Grid.Column="0" Grid.RowSpan="2">

      <BoxView HorizontalOptions="Center" VerticalOptions="Fill" WidthRequest="100" BackgroundColor="Blue"></BoxView>


    <StackLayout Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="0"  Orientation="Horizontal" BackgroundColor="#777777" Padding="10,0,10,0">
      <Label Style="{StaticResource OverviewSectionLabel}" VerticalOptions="CenterAndExpand" Text="Motor limiters and foldbacks"></Label>
      <BoxView HorizontalOptions="EndAndExpand" BackgroundColor="Red" VerticalOptions="Center" WidthRequest="30" HeightRequest="30"></BoxView>

    <Grid Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1" BackgroundColor="Black">
      <StackLayout x:Name="contentStackLayout">


See the screenshot for how the label seems wrapped correctly, but the height of the stacklayout is not correct. Might be related to the grid row height as well.

Forgot to mention that when I increase the length of the string, eventually the second line of the label will appear (the stacklayout height is corrected)

Seeing this on on Android, iOS, and Windows.

I am experiencing a very similar, if not the same problem. Are there any work arounds for this?
