settings designer - can't find my types

I am setting up all my settings using the built-in settings stuff in Visual
Studio (though using my own provider to change the storage location/type for
the settings).

All goes well until i try to set the Type of one of my settings to something
that is in my current project. Types in the current project are not
displayed in the Select a Type dialog. All of the BCL types are displayed,
as well as types in some of my DLLs that i created and referenced in this
project. But not local types.

I tried just typing in the FQN of the type but it gave me an error message
that it is not a valid type.

Am i missing a setting somewhere? What would cause this? Or is this somehow
(<cringes>) by design?

Thanks in advance,

-Tim

No one?
Surely someone has seen this problem or knows what i'm talking about...
I'm really kind of stuck. I swear i got it working once just by typing in
the right type name (FQ) into the "Select a Type" dialog - but that's not
working for me anymore...

Thanks in advance,
