Incompatible switches: UpdateJumpList & Exit #1478

ConEmu build: 180206 [64]
OS version: Windows 10.0.16299 [64]
ConEmu installed via Chocolatey:

Problem description

When both switches (-UpdateJumpList & -Exit) are used I get popup with error message and apparently no Jump List links are setup in Windows. Error message says: CoInitialize has not been called - probably, because I have localized version of this message, even though ConEmu is in English:

Steps to reproduce

As described here: I would like to use switch UpdateJumpList for automated ConEmu integration with Windows. Also I would like to use switch Exit for automatic exit after this setup actions.

I have PowerShell script which save prepared ConEmu.xml file under path: ~\AppData\Roaming and calls:

    & ConEmu64.exe -UpdateJumpList -Exit

I would expect that, Windows' Jump List Links will be setup according to defined tasks in configuration file. Then, ConEmu should close itself, so it would not float around - just cosmetic stuff, but nice for scripted full Windows environment preparation.

As workaround I'm using this kind of execution:

    & ConEmu64.exe -UpdateJumpList -run exit

It is working but I'm forced to push Enter twice. First one is to acknowledge popup with information that: Takbar jump list was updated successfully,, then second one is to acknowledge that: Root process was alive less than 10 sec, ExitCode=0., and finally ConEmu closes it self - as my configuration says.
