On an iPad 2 running iOS 7 with LC 6.6.2rc1, the top of the card is now the
top of the device. The first 20 pixels(iPad 2) of the card is in the status
bar area. I think this was introduced by integrating Xcode 5 into LC not
from the update to the 6.1.2 engine from the 6.1.1 engine. Old apps that
were linked using 6.1.1 running on a iOS 7 device do not exhibit this

I see this as a bug.

The items that are different have a * preceding them.
