Sample Project

The HockeyApp 3.5.0 bind available at Xamarin Component Store has a bug in the TraceWriter.WriteTrace method.
The last parameter, terminate, that defines if the app will close after register the exception is being ignored. Even if pass FALSE the App will be forcibly closed.

I think this is the same code of T.J. Purtell, he has the same issue.

A workaround is to convert your exception a java Throwable object and call the SaveException method.

[code]var throwable = Java.Lang.Throwable.FromException(ex);
HockeyApp.ExceptionHandler.SaveException(throwable, null);[/code]

This is fixed in master and will be included in the next release.  Currently waiting on 3.7.0 to go stable from HockeyApp and the component will be updated with the fix at that time.
