Steps to reproduce:

1. Start a download.
2. File -> Exit

Anyone know when this started?

I had problems understanding what your fix do, so could you please explain to me what happens if you have current downloads and select File > Exit?

Is a confirmation displayed (I doubt that), or does it just close and cancel the downloads before exiting?

It just cancels the download right now. In the near future we'll have a confirmation dialog. In the long-term future we'll offer to pause the downloads (or just do it automatically).

It exits immediately and then a windows error message pops up "Phoenix.exe has generated an error ...... eroor log will be written".

So Phoenix itself doesn't report anything.

Not if you have a separate download dialog open for the download. If you're downloading using the download sidebar (e.g. no progress window is displayed), I guess you will cancel the download if you close the last window.

Maybe the future confirmation dialog should also be displayed if you close the last window the normal way (e.g. not using File>Exit, but pressing the X icon) and have active downloads in the sidebar?
