Description of Problem:

In order to run some code off the UI thread, and some on, the TaskScheduler
"TaskScheduler.FromCurrentSynchronizationContext()" is used with a ContinueWith
of the background task.

However, either ContinueWith is broken or the UI TaskScheduler is broken
because such synchronized tasks end up executing on the background thread
instead of the main UI thread.

Steps to reproduce the problem:

            var t = Task.Factory.StartNew(() => {
                return 42;

            t.ContinueWith((r) => {

                // DO UI WORK ON UI THREAD

            }, TaskScheduler.FromCurrentSynchronizationContext());

There is an attached project that demos this bug. Watch the console output.
