I strongly believe that this is related to the way WPF Framework works. Throwing the exception might somehow prevent the UI from updating successfully. What you can do is to test this scenario with some MS WPF Control. If the problem persist, probably this is something in the framework. If not, you can send us a runnable sample in a new support thread that we will investigate locally. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
