VS.NET 2003 Locks Up Ever Time...

... I slide out my toolbox and try to pin it right away.

When I'm in code mode, I like to hide my Toolbox to have more real estate for coding. When I'm ready to go back to WinForm view, I like to show my Toolbox so I can drag controls. If I'm in “code mode“ for too long and quickly decide to start using my Toolbox for some reason, my immediate action is to hover over my [Toolbox] tab to slide it out and click the Pin button. Well, 9 times out of 10 it locks up my IDE. The only way that I can prevent it from not locking up is if I let it think for a few seconds, then pin it. I think there is some kind of a threading issue here and it's quite frustrating...
