I am using a
I had the same issue and I've just found out that for some reason the FrameLayout that represents the drawer have the visibility set to "gone", that probably goes to "visible" during the first slideGesture.
So, open your layout xml file, locate your FrameLayout that represents the drawer and simply erase the visibility setting. My opening tag is now as follows:
<FrameLayout android:layout_width="305dp" android:layout_height="match_parent" android:layout_gravity="start">
That worked for me.
