Android tap location doesn't match visual location

I’m having trouble with an app that up until now has just been for iOS. Most of the changes have been pretty straight forward but I’ve encountered a specific case where touching a button doesn’t pass the touch message to the button being tapped… unless I touch significantly below the button (I also had to switch from mouse messages to touch messages in this particular case.) This is not a general issue. It only happens when I show a group  containing the buttons in question and while this group is displayed there is repeat loop running that includes  “wait with messages” (I’m faking a modal dialog.) I encountered this once before under the same circumstances (a fake modal dialog while moving an iOS app to Android) and simply switched to using the built in dialog. Unfortunately, that won’t work in this case.  Any thoughts?
