Visual Studio 2005 hates me

I've had so many problems since I started developing ASP.NET apps in
VS2005.
Here is just another one:

Sometimes in this particular project, whenever I change the ID property
of a control such as a textbox or drop down, it won't retain the value.
I have to swap to HTML mode and edit the text to retain the value.

Closing and opening again seems to solve it.

My other major problem is that sometimes I get run time exceptions
about assemblies that I know nothing about, and to fix the error, I
need to simply open any web control in my project, then build again,
and it works. I don't actually need to change anything.

Any help on issue 1 or 2 would be great (hopefully someone else has
experienced these in VS2005).

Are you developing the assemblies you refernece in the webeditor in
another instance of vs.net at the same time? It might help to
rightclick the assembly under references in the solution explorer in
the webproject and then select update reference, so the webproject has
the latest build.

It's indeed a pain, don't get me started on this issue, though besides
manually refreshing the reference and often close/reopen vs.net I
haven't found a solution for this.

No here's the thing, I'm not using any assemblies except for the base
class library.
But I do have web controls inside other controls, nesting as much as 6
deep. This was never an issue in 2003 however.

I'll try your suggestion. Any ideas on the first issue, with the ID not
changing?
