Intellisense, Autocomplete, etc. stops working in certain classes

P: n/a

I'm having problems with intellisense, autocomplete, etc. suddenly not
working in certain classes of a project I'm working on. All the options are
set, and it all works fine for most classes, but for some it just suddenly
stopped working. After a build it'll work maybe once or twice, then stop.
I've tried repairing my installation of Visual Studio 2003 but that didn't
help. Is Microsoft working on a fix for this, or is there something that is
stopping these features from working in those classes?

This has recently occurred in a new form class. The last thing I did was
double click on two menu items in the form designer to make VB.NET create
the event handlers for me.

This did not happen with Visual Studio 2002 which I've been using since
February. It only started happening when we upgraded to VS 2003.

Are you sure you are including the appropriate libraries? if you are
missing a reference, and you try to reference a method of a class and you
don't fully qualify it, you'll have issues.

IE, If I just have imports System

and I try Dim s as New SqlConnection it won't see SqlConnection.

I need to use Dim s as New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection...

Or add Imports System.Data.SqlClient

However, if you have the references, I'm not sure what's going on.
