AcceleratedDisplayLayers Group Initialization Exception

I am getting an "Object reference not set to an instance of an object." exception at
StackTrace "   at ESRI.ArcGIS.Client.DrawingSurface..ctor(Single dpi)\r\n   at 
                       ESRI.ArcGIS.Client.AcceleratedDisplayLayers.Initialize() string

as reported in the InitializationFailed handler for my AcceleratedDisplayLayers group.

A sample xaml is provided below. Basically the example below works perfectly fine when I move the local feature layer outside of the AcceleratedDisplayLayers group. If I keep it in the accelerated layers I get the exception.

It should also be noted that my base application is a WinForms app so I have my map in a WPF control that is hosted in my form using ElementHost. I can take the markup below and set it up in a new WPF application and it seems to work as is? Very strange... Hopefully someone else has run into this and has some insight!

Edit: I have now referenced the project containing the WPF control that is giving me the exception to my WPF test project and can load up the control just fine in a WPF window with no initialization exception. Accelerated layers support doesn't seem to like being hosted in a WinForm via ElementHost.
