I copied just the Xaml of the view to a new project, and I was no longer able to reproduce this issue. It might be something with the project itself.
Comment 5 Jason Smith [MSFT] 2015-02-05 05:35:02 UTC
Looks like catching exception when thrown is turned on, this just means the debugger is pausing when the exception is thrown, even if its in a try/catch. This is expected.
