long wait in BackKeyPress causes the app to be killed RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, today I noticed for the first time that if you wait too much inside a BackKeyPress event handler (easy if you open a MessageBox inside that) your app will be killed by the OS.
    It happens only for apps signed... I tried with unsigneds in both debug and release configuration, in both device and emulator, and they aren't never killed.

    I also noticed that signed apps are not killed in WP7... it seems to be a "WP8 thing".

    As I said, I discovered this only today and I'd like to know if this is a new thing coming with GDR3 or if it's an older behavior.
    Can you tell me when this behavior was introduced?
