repro solution

### Overview
When a ListView is in a StackLayout which is contained in a ScrollView, the ListView appears to have a default height. This results in a large empty area between the elements below it if there are not enough list items:

I remember Jason telling not to nest scrollview and listview inside each other. You should probably revise your design unless you have a strong reason to do scrollview -> stacklayout -> listview.

Users should not nest scrollable views.
