On application startup at Windows Phone 8.1 there are 3 exceptions thrown.
One happens inside a Windows backtrace where it seems there is nothing we can do.
The other two happen in the QWinRTScreen constructor at following points:
- hr = d->coreWindow->Activate();
- hr = d->coreWindow->get_Bounds(&rect);
However, the application continues to run smoothly afterwards. Still we should try to avoid such exceptions.
