Grrrrrrrr...... "fatal error C1060: compiler is out of heap space"

I am suddenly getting the obnoxious error C1060 when I try to compile
my project. I have tried adjusting the /Zm switch as suggested by the
help documents, but this is a project setting and not a VS.NET setting
so that requires write access to the project file. This is an
unacceptable solution since the file is shared among many users. I'd
try rebuilding the entire project since this is most likely yet
another bug in VS.NET, but that would require over an hour to build.
My guess is that that compiler has determined that doing its job and
compiling the code is interfering with with the numerous sleep and
stall commands that seem to litter the VS.NET codebase!

Hmmm ... The last time I saw this was in a project where the developers had
gotten themselves into a maze of circular header file includes. Took a
couple of days of #pragma message (or whatever) scattered around the files
to isolate the offender. No amount of heap size mods made a difference.
