I have that exact issue as well.

Sorry for the very late response on this subject, but we have found the bug that causes the display problems and it will be fixed in our next release of Visual Studio. Beta 2 will be released soon.

Let me get this straight. This is a VS 2005 bug, affecting all current users - and we need to wait until Orcas release in late 2008 to get the bug fixed

That's messed up...

Actually Orcas will ship this year. we just released beta 2 which contains the fix already.

Sorry but I can't stay quiet on this one...

So you're saying that if we want that bug corrected, on a "non beta" version of VS, we must use the new version, still in beta.

I should try to work this way with my customers to see how they react.

We just bought 10+ licences of the full team stuffs and we should use a free beta.

I won't say that to my manager and just say that the stuff is buggy and that we must stick to non-microsoft tools.

BTW, while we're still laughing, can you provide us a date for Orcas SP1, so that we can plan our VS migration.

Thanks.

JM.

The message that Chuck relayed is that this issue is currently fixed in Orcas per beta 2, if you need it fixed you can open a case with product support and they can handle it from there. This is the normal procedure.

Sorry,
