Test app with unhandled error bug (58.64 KB, application/x-zip-compressed)

Test app with unhandled error bug

The ExceptionObject in the UnhandledExceptionEventArgs never has a stacktrace (and other properties). Only the exception message is shown.

In the RaiseThrowableEventArgs of the UnhandledExceptionRaiser function the exception does contain all information.

I have tried some workarounds, without success.

This is the code (see attached test application):

		protected override void OnCreate(Bundle bundle)
			TabLayoutResource = Resource.Layout.Tabbar;
			ToolbarResource = Resource.Layout.Toolbar;

			// Unhandled errors.
			AndroidEnvironment.UnhandledExceptionRaiser += AndroidEnvironment_UnhandledExceptionRaiser;
			AppDomain.CurrentDomain.UnhandledException += CurrentDomainOnUnhandledException;

			global::Xamarin.Forms.Forms.Init(this, bundle);
			LoadApplication(new App());

		private void AndroidEnvironment_UnhandledExceptionRaiser(object sender, RaiseThrowableEventArgs args)
			// Here the exception contains the stacktrace.
			string sTest = args.Exception.ToString();
			// This proposed workaraound causes error {System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of an object.}
//			typeof(System.Exception).GetField("stack_trace", BindingFlags.NonPublic | BindingFlags.Instance).SetValue(args.Exception, null);
//			throw args.Exception;

		private static void CurrentDomainOnUnhandledException(object sender, UnhandledExceptionEventArgs args)
			// Here the stacktrace is always null. Tested on emulator and device.
			string sTest = args.ExceptionObject.ToString();

I am CONFIRMING this behavior based on the reproduction in https://bugzilla.xamarin.com/show_bug.cgi?id=54323#c0

Since I'm unsure of what should propagate with regards to this event handler, I'll leave it to be answered by someone else.

Thank you for the report!
