Pull to Refresh Memory Leak, android 5.0 only


We have a Samsung Note 4 running 5.0.1 lollipop.

Simply adding the following directive to the tab-dash.html template causes the leak to occur, taking up to 14%-25% CPU consumption. I have also ran this test on a Samsung Galaxy S5. I know there are plenty of conversations out there about the famous android leak in 5.0, but in this case I can isolate it to just adding the single directive below. Is there a work-around I can try out to get this leak to go away?

  <ion-refresher pulling-text="Pull to refresh...">

Same issue, 15% of CPU because of the presence of a ion-refresher!

Very important issue IMO to be fixed.


I get slow transitions with many list items when using the refresher, dunno why
