Description

I recently updated to VS 2012 from 2008 and have noticed that it crashes roughly every 2-5 minutes (memory leak?) when I have two (maybe more as well) vertical tab groups open. If I do not use vertical tabs, it seems much more stable.

hi Andrew

We've noticed you have Visual Assist installed. Does this issue still happen if you disable Visual Assist?

Thanks

As I come across this issue more and more, it seems to occur every time VS loses focus to another application.

Steps to repro (not 100%):
1) Open VS and open a solution. I've been using multiple tab groups as well.
2) switch back and forth focus between VS and any other program currently running.
3) VS will eventually crash
