Access 2007 form not visible when going from design view to form view

I have an Access 2007 form that works fine as long as I stay in form view. But as soon as I open it in design view then switch back to form view it is invisible and the program is locked. I have to exit through task manager at this stage.

There is no code to change the visibility and the form is not modal.

I have decompiled the db and compacted and repaired it, all to no avail. Any suggestions as to what is going on?

Thanks

Create a new database.
Import objects from old database to new one.
Try tables and the mentioned form first.
If  it works fine, continue importing other objects.
