When you are editing a class attribute in the Microsoft Visual Studio .NET IDE for a class that has many attributes associated with it (64 or more), the IDE disappears.

You may also notice that if you view the count of the attributes that are associated with a class through the code model by using the VCCodeClass.Attributes.Count method, the method returns an incorrect value.
