Whenever I try to add a combo box from the AJAX toolkit, I get this gray box that says,
"There was an error rendering the control.  Request is not available in this context"
How can I solve this problem?

Apparently there is an error using Combobox in design mode in certain system configurations... They are aware and maybe fixing it?

Yes,  the combobox simply doesn't show up in design view, but when it linked to a datasource and viewed in browser it works just fine.
Good. Do you think it may have to do with the bug in the ComboBox control that I posted above?
