master pages in vs2010

I have been trying to migrate a VB.net web site to a web app called "VMA".  One of the most maddening problems is with master pages.

In the root folder I have created a master page called "Master".  It creates the page OK with inherits="VMA.Master" (note the app name at the beginning), but no namespace in the designer or the code-behind.

Next, I add a new web form, "Default", to use this new master page.  When I run the app, it keeps throwing the error "could not load type "VMA.Master".  

Please help.  This is making me nuts!

There is usually a problem when going from a Web Site model to a Web Application model, because of the attributes that are used.  I believe that the Web Site model uses the CodeFile attribute, and the Web Application model uses the CodeBehind attribute.
