IDE AutoComplete Bombs Out

For no appearnt reason, the AutoComplete stopped showing me the members of a
number of classes used in my project. It was working just fine, and as of
yeasterday, AutoComplete stopped working. It works with some classes, but
not others. I didn't change anything that should effect this.

The classes also don't show up anymore under the 'Class View' and I can't
navigate to the definition using the keyboard hotkey. It still works for
all .NET foundation classes, just stopped on mine. I have about 50 classes
in the namespace and only 6 show up under the 'Class View' and AutoComplete
works on.

Is this a known bug? Anyway to fix this?

This might happen if there is some sort of error in your code, eg 2 functions of the same name with the same signature, or a
dependency that cannot be found.

Have you tried another solution to see if this shows the same bug?
Got this once, just reinstalled the damn thing, that worked for me...

None of the above. When I removed all the 'bin' and 'obj' directories from
each solution, the problem cleared up. Appears somehow a file was corrupted
since not a line of code was changed.

This is a common problem. I find that you only need delete the obj
directory, and I usually end up doing it once or twice a day...
