ArrayList as ListBox.DataSource

P: n/a
My problem occurs when I use an ArrayList as a ListBox.DataSource. When the
ArrayList attached to the Listbox is not empty the Listbox behave normal
without problem, but if I remove all items from the ArrayList and re-attach
the ArrayList to the ListBox the program hangs for about 3-5 seconds then
keep running normal.

I'm following the examples from the MSDN and dont see anything abnormal.
This is a sample of the code I'm using:

1 IList codesA = (IList)lstOfGroupAccessCodes.DataSource;
2 IList codesB = (IList)lstOfCodesNotInGroup.DataSource;
3 Object selectedItem = lstOfGroupAccessCodes.SelectedItem;

4 codesA.Remove(selectedItem);
5 lstOfGroupAccessCodes.DataSource = null;

6 lstOfGroupAccessCodes.DataSource = codesA;

7 lstOfCodesNotInGroup.DataSource = null;
8 codesB.Add(selectedItem);
9 lstOfCodesNotInGroup.DataSource = codesB;

The program hangs on line 6 for about 3-5 seconds when I remove the last
item of the ArrayList ( codesA.Count == 0 )
