When using self sizing table view cells together with UIKit’s default table view cells, they don’t size correctly. They also change their size while scrolling.

Steps to Reproduce:
0. Open the attached sample project
1. Run on iPad
2. Tap on ‘Open Popover’

Expected Results:
The distance from text to separator line should be the same for all cells, top and bottom.
Text should be fully visible.

Actual Results:
Text is fully visible.
Notice that some lines of text are very close to the separator lines as their size is too small.

It seems that this happens more often when inside a popover and when having an image set, but can also be seen when having a table view without images and first scroll down and then back up. While scrolling up, the scroll view jumps.

I also attached a Screencast where the issue can be seen. Note the wrongly positioned text label and also the jumping while scrolling through the table view. This is a duplicate of rdar://26621519
