Debugger hangs when attaching to w3wp

Frequently, when I am trying to debug my ASP.Net/C# web project using Visual Studio 2008, VS will hang when I try to attach to the w3wp process.  If I let it sit there, it will eventually start responding again after 10+ minutes, and debugging works fine for the rest of the day.  A funny side affect of when VS starts responding again is that every folder in my solution explorer is expanded.

Might be very less RAM ? I think we need mini. of 3GM for good responsiveness when we have vista.

So it seems like this only happens when I have "Show All Files" selected in my solution explorer.  I have thousands of files in my project directory, and it seems like some process is going through every single file that is in the solution explorer when I try to start up the debugger.  I don't know if this is a Visual Studio bug or not, but the way to work around it for now is to make sure that "Show All Files" is not selected if you have a lot of files.
