B4J Question [B4J][B4XPages]Trouble getting jfx8Print dialogs to work

I have been trying to get the print dialogs to work in my app. I'm using simple code to call the dialog but as soon as I do I get an Unexpected Event error. The code below is what I've tried. I've also tried actually utilizing the Boolean Return and declaring and initializing a Form to use instead of Null.
B4X:
Dim pj As PrinterJob = PrinterJob_Static.CreatePrinterJob
pj.ShowPageSetupDialog(Null)
If the whole thing were innocuous I wouldn't mind too much but when I close the dialog it also closes the app, which isn't what I want.

Here's the stack trace:
B4X:
Unexpected event (missing RaiseSynchronousEvents): mainform_focuschanged

It's probably something simple but I haven't been able to get a grasp on it so any help would be appreciated.

I can't ignore it since something is crashing the app and I'm lost as to what is going wrong. So here is a test app along with a stack trace so maybe someone can determine the cause and solution.

Thanks for any help on this.

If I run it in Release mode it seems to work okay or, at least, doesn't terminate prematurely. To me, that implies that there is a problem with Debug mode which, since break points are ignored in Release mode, would make debugging print routines rather difficult.

Ok, that leads me to the (apparent) solution. I added these 2 lines to the PrinterJob module in the JFX8Printer source:
B4X:
#RaisesSynchronousEvents: ShowPageSetupDialog
#RaisesSynchronousEvents: ShowPrintDialog
After I rebuilt the library, the crashes in Debug mode disappeared.

(Thanks to @stevel05 for posting the source so long ago.)
