Yes, definitely add a condition to check the designtime state.

There are many scenarios when the Canvas cannot be accessed and it is a 
common mistake to access it when not allowed.

I didn't study the issue further but to me it looks strange that setting 
some parameters in CreateParams helps with it. Juha, your commit 
description "Somehow fixes issue ..." doesn't help to understand your 
change either.

So I would encourage the component author to rewrite his code.
