Windows 10 Mobile 10080 - Blank Start Screen

So, it took me a while to figure this one out.... I installed the latest windows mobile release, everything was fine (well, the install was a bit messy but whatever), started installing apps and then....nothing would show on the start screen. You could show the notification settings, but no apps.

I could hack around by launching Cortana and it would launch some apps that way, but not others. What is going on is that the store (not store beta, the original) is still downloading apps. If it stalls, the start screen will come back for a bit. Apparently, it needs to finish installing everything that is queued up (which for me requires a WiFi connection, I'm away from home so don't have one at the moment) for the start screen to come back for good.

Weird bug, but there you go.
