#878 – Unhandled Exceptions in Static Constructors

If any exception is thrown from within a static constructor, a TypeInitializationException will be thrown, with an InnerException set to the original exception that occurred.  If this exception is not caught, the application will be terminated.

    public class Dog
        public static string Motto { get; set; }

        static Dog()
            Motto = "Serve humans and chase balls";
            throw new Exception("Static Dog constructor threw me");
