Problem with inherited forms moving from VS2003 to VS2005: Read-only collection

I am moving some of my VS 2003 projects to VS 2005. In my base library there
is a baseform that is inherited by most forms in my application. The
baseform in the library contains a protected untyped Dataset, containing one
table. In the designer for the inherited forms, I then add specific columns
and other tables to the inherited dataset.

This does not work in VS 2005 anymore, because the Tables property of the
dataset in the inherited form is now set 'Read only'. This is a problem,
because I cannot add columns and tables anymore, so binding to a grid, for
example, is not possible anymore in design time.

I read that this is more or less by design in VS 2005, but is there a
workaround for the above scenario?

I'm looking forward to any suggestions how this can be solved.
