User Controls in winforms project disappear

We have a multi project winforms solution under Visual Source Safe 2005.
One project was the UserControl library. We had many issues with every usercontrol disappearing on every form so we moved the usercontrols into the project that contains the forms.
Now one form still loses controls. Other forms do not.
Each developer has been losing the list of controls from the "My User Controls" tab of the toolbox. If we open a usercontrol in design view and save it, it reappears in the toolbox.
Does anyone know what is going on?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Did you try adding the item to ToolBox manually, and not depend on the IDE to keep track of "My User Controls".  When you do it that way, you can turn off this setting:

Tools | Options | Windows Form Designer | AutoToolboxPopulate

When the controls were a separate project, I did add them manually. Now that they are in the same assembly as the forms, I don't know if that's possible.

You can add any control from any assembly to the ToolBox.
