The SE Android app (
v1.0.85 beta 1.0.95) refreshes the Hot Network Question (HNQ) on the feed too aggressively.
Steps to reproduce:
- Open the SE app and wait until it displays the feed with HNQ on the top.
- Scroll down until the HNQ is hidden, then scroll up to the HNQ without triggering pull-to-refresh.
- The HNQ changes without actually refreshing the feed.
As far as I can remember, on v1.0.83, the HNQ question would change only when opening the app or do pull-to-refresh.

Note: Brian just confirmed it's a bug: "I've noticed the refresh control unexpectedly appear while scrolling. Could be related." Probably there's a better way to make it toggle by itself, just not as abrupt as this
