Delete key in textbox causes application hang

P: n/a
Hi y'all!

I'm trying to adapt a VB.Net application that a former employee built to
keep track of product issues that our customers report.

While doing so, I bump into the following problem:
a textbox contained in a user control that's put on a MDI Child form causes
the application to hang as soon as you hit the Delete key while editing.
Everything freezes and only Ctrl + Esc or Ctrl + Alt + Delete will bring
things back to life.
Breakpoints in the KeyUp, KeyPress event handling code of the textbox are
reached, but only after Ctrl + Esc or Ctrl + Alt + Delete has been used.

Also, the BackSpace seems to be disabled for editing in the textbox.
I've run through his code, but can't find anything irregular.

Anyone an idea what's going on here?
Thanks in advance!

You will need to post the relevent code/attach the project before anyone can
hazard a guess at that one...
