CameraCaptureUI.CaptureFileAsync() is returning a corrupt StorageFile if user selects "Save as a copy" option on the OS dialog

When using CameraCaptureUI in a UWP app, if cropping is allowed as follows:

CameraCaptureUI captureUI = new CameraCaptureUI();

captureUI.PhotoSettings.Format = CameraCaptureUIPhotoFormat.Jpeg;

captureUI.PhotoSettings.CroppedSizeInPixels = new Size(200, 200);

StorageFile photo = await captureUI.CaptureFileAsync(CameraCaptureUIMode.Photo);

The StorageFile returned from the CaptureFileAsync() call is corrupt when user selects Save as a copy instead of Save after performing the OS Photos dialog popup that is part of the CaptureFileAsync() call. It is 0 bytes in size.

Why is the image coming back corrupt? And is there a way of checking where the user saved the edited copy?
