Visual Studio crashing when I click on custom control


I have a custom control.  When I try and build my project, or click on the custom control (placed in another form) visual studio crashes saying:

Microsoft Visual Studio has encountered a problem and needs to close.

It was working at some point, so obviously I have done something to piss visual studio off... how can I figure out what I did, and what I need to do to fix it?

Well I seem to have figured it out by a process of eliminating... just commenting parts out, and uncommenting them.  Everything is  uncommented now, and it still works.  I only made 1 change, checking for a null value in a property.  

Does vs call that property or something?  Because in my code I never call it before it is initialized... is that somethin that vs does? in design mode?
Well, it depends on the location of the code...

If you put a code inside the form load or the sub new. And an error was encountered visual studio cannot load that control, or let you drag it in your form.

Its not in form load or new..

Its just in a "set" property.  So either it was the change i made there that made the difference, or just some glitch in vs, that commenting out, and uncommenting the code fixed..?  

Sometimes vs drives me crazy!
Can you  post the code?
