Try Catch aspect on async void method doesn't work

See original GitHub issue

Hi, we have another problem with try/catch aspect described here

It just doesn’t come to catch block in case when unhandeled exception occurs in “async void” method:

 public async void AddWhatever23()
                throw new Exception("");

with public async Task AddWhatever23() - all OK.

Any ideas of handling such case?
