Visual Studio 2005. Was working nicely when all of a sudden the program shut down, no warning, no asking if I want to save my work (lost some unsaved stuff, but mainly my concentration). Other programs stayed up, only VS shut down.

When I reopened the list of "recent projects" was empty.

What could have happened? Did I use a strange combination of keys/mouse?
Anybody else had this happen?

What were you doing ? Starting for debugging, adding items to the project, alter folders on harddisk, ... ?

> What were you doing

Just typing. Maybe I hit a strange key combination by accident.
