For the "Expected" results, please be more explicit.   What I think this means is that, if email is not set up yet, user is taken to email setup screen, and after it's set up, to the compose screen.
Sorry about that, I'll word it more effectively in the future. Yes, as a user, I don't expect to see the 'compose' email screen before I'm able to use it.
I can clarify the implementation state of things.  We push the compose UI card on speculatively assuming the user has already setup e-mail because we have to wait for the e-mail backend to start up.  If we find they don't have an e-mail address setup, we pop up the confirm dialog which then overlays the compose card.

We have a variety of cleanup fixes going on relating to the various "screen goes black" bugs that are fallouts from the confirm flow/etc.  So this may magically get fixed and get uplifted to various places.  (We might be able to use our cookie hint to improve our guessing in the process.)

However, this is generally a very low priority bug since we expect the user to set-up an e-mail app or stop hitting the share button in the browser once they realize that all it does is bring up the e-mail app which pesters them about setting up an account after faking them out.
