VS 2003 Locking up

I have a web form using code-behind page that has around six panels.  I'm fine looking at the code and the html views, but as  soon as I switch to "design" view, VS just hangs.

Anyone else had similar experience?  Any idea what might be causing it?  Note: I started this page in Web Matrix and had the same problem.  Don't know how much shared code there is between the two.

It hangs on me when I try and open the server explorer. I'll just keep submitting those crash reports to MS..

And is it me or will the devenv process just not die without a reboot?

Occasionally I had to shut down a frozen devenv.exe with the task manager (Ctrl+Alt+Esc) before it would go away. Never had to reboot to get rid of it, though.

Task manager never seems to kill it for me. Even tried downloading another process monitor from but that wouldn't shift it either.

The upside is that I have to roll my own database stuff rather than rely on wizards.
