If you do want a work around and you want to have a refresh, without having the entire list view refreshed: Use an associated object which you refresh. So let's say in the list view objects of type A are loaded. And those objects have a direct (parent or 1-on-1) relation with an object of type B. Show object B nested in object A and only refresh object B. The list view should not be refreshed as I recall.
I have tested this in a sample project and worked for me, so I hope this will work for you too.
