VS.NET Designer Memory Leak

P: n/a
I am having a problem opening/editing two particular ASP.NET files in
Visual Studio .NET
Whenever I open one of these pages inside VS in the designer mode,
devenv.exe starts using 100% of the CPU and starts eating up memory. My

start in on the virtual memory. I've seen it use around 2+GB before I've

Additional Information:
This project was developed by someone else in the office and I loaded it

The original developer has not seen any problems with the pages

I have run into the same problem too...For me, they are part of my project...that all of a sudden started to produce this issue. My only changes were updating infragistics to Vol 4....I do not recall if I experienced the issues immediately after updating infragistics.

Dave, have you figured out the issue?
