    Wow, I have seen my share of problems with the designer, but not that one.  That sounds just like a bug.  Are you working with 2010 SP1 or base?  

    The designer looks like it is trying to get a value from a class property (PropertyInfo.GetValue).

    Most of my problems with the designer not opening are usually based on poor choices in the construction sections (constructor, property declarations, etc.).

    I had the out-of-memory problems with the base, when working with the data tools in the IDE (Data | Transact-SQL | New Query Connection).  I don't have problems now that I installed SP1.  I am working on Windows XP, and it has memory fragmentation problems, that Windows 7 doesn't have.
