This bug is in Master and not C8 or C9

This change in Master resulted in some issues.

This code now started having unobserved aggregate exception been thrown. 
Started throwing Java.IO.IOException in place of WebException

Code in AndroidClientHandler SendAsync Call.

This Code:
await Task.WhenAny (
                httpConnection.ConnectAsync (),
                Task.Run (()=> { cancellationToken.WaitHandle.WaitOne(); }))

The problem here is that Task.WhenAny this returns Task<Task> not a Task this orphans the task it is not waited on. 
Before this change it was ok the code did not result in these unobserved aggregate exception 

Simple test with await await Task.WhenAny (httpConnection.ConnectAsync ()...
Seems to resolve the issue.

Note the solution of double "await await Task.WhenAny" solves most the issues, but the core problem with WhenAny it only allows exceptions from the first task to finish to be observed. The others are lost if you don't handle them and wont materialize to the caller and be an issue.

Like the case here when the cancelation token is envoked this cause the WhenAny to exit on the cancellation and also causes the delegate that calls Disconnect. That second delegate call on Disconnect causes httpConnection.ConnectAsync to throw a socket disconnect exception that I lost as an un observed exception. This case should probably also be addressed.
