If you make a fence from a directory and make the view for the fence 'List' it does what it is supposed to.
If you then resize your screen resolution the view for that fence changes to 'Details'.
Hope this can be fixed as I use fences a lot in list view and also have to change my resolutions quite often.
This is still broken in beta 2.1
I was not able to reproduce you issue as you described it. After changing the resolution, the Folder Portal kept the list view.
