Visual Studio 2005 - external build, error parsing

I use Visual Studio 2005 for a C-project using an external compiler, and came
up with the idea that error parsing would be neat, i.e. enabling the
functionality
available for a "normal" build where you can double click a compile
error/warning message and be guided to the file/line in question.

Using sed to filter output from the compiler i managed to make the error
output look like the ones generated from the regular compiler, and hooray, it
seemed to work!

However, i found that in some cases double clicking an error message it will
crash the entire Visual Studio framework, and I simply can't figure out why.

Examples:

These two work, and are stable:

V:\ulth_view\gc 900xp\cu\scu\c\ scu_bas.c(338) : Error C0137 : expression must
be a modifiable lvalue
V:\ulth_view\gc 900xp\cu\scu\c\ scu_bas.c(333) : Warning C0177-D : variable
"iWontUseTh is" was declared but never referenced

While this one is highly unstable:

V:\ulth_extende d\gc800ext\CU\c u\scu\c\scu_bas .c(1001) : Error C0020 :
undeclared identifier "sculog"
I can't see the difference here, so if anyone can i'd be delighted to hear
any theories. If someone inside MS could explain in detail what happens when
you double click somewhere in the output window, it would also be valuable to
me.
I know I'm going a bit outside the scope of Visual Studio here, but when it
is working I find it highly useful, and so would probably others who use this
framework with external compilers.

PS: When writing this, i just realised there's another difference: The ones
that are working are in a single project solution, while the ones that aren't
are in a multi project solution. Perhaps this hasn't got anything to do with
error parsing to do at all, but rather the mechanism for finding a certain
file and focusing on it? I don't know.

I am using PostBuild events in a C# project to run some tasks, but only when in release configuration mode. The build events run perfectly as expected when run. The problem comes when I save the project, close VS, and reopen VS and the project. When I build again, i get a post-build event error. So I open the event to look at it. Guess what, it is not the post-build event i saved. Instead all the carriage returns are replaced with...

I recently upgraded to from Visual Studio .NET 2003 to Visual Studio .NET 2005. In Visual Studio .NET 2003 when I would select 'Build' it would add a *.dll with the name of the Project to a /bin/ folder in the same directory as the source code. However, in Visual Studio .NET 2005 when I selected 'Publish Web Site' and selected a target location to place it in, it placed the following files in it: All *.aspx files All *.html files
