I had the following crash whilst editing some SQL source code in SQL Express management studio. I was not doing anything out of the ordinary with the editor; I was simply in the middle of typing a query. I haven't managed to reproduce it in half an hour of trying. The application looped with a message box from the .NET framework containing this error. Pressing 'Continue' merely caused the box to disappear and then immediately re-appear. I had to kill the Management Studio instance in order to re-gain control. I can supply a full list of the loaded modules associated with the application if required.

    I have the same problem now and then. Can't reproduce it either.

    I usually crash while the cache is being updated. I've also experienced problems with
    if object_id('tempdb..#tmpTbl') is null
       create table #tmpTbl
    While the cursor is in the quotes SQL Prompt notices the different database and tries to re-cache while also having other databases in the cache.
    I want to be unique, just like everyone else.
