Blank map when WPF is in software rendering mode

Hello, in 100.3, using WPF I'm seeing a blank map with nothing at all rendered when the hosting WPF application has fallen back to software rendering mode. Unfortunately, our desktop application is required to work in this case because there are some circumstances in which WPF uses software rendering that are outside of our control.

 

This is reproducible by setting RenderOptions.ProcessRenderMode = RenderMode.SoftwareOnly.

 

I'm guessing this could be because the D3DImage.SetBackBuffer method is being called without the optional parameter to fallback to software rendering.

 

Is there a solution or workaround for this?
