vshost.exe is created and used by Visual Studio, so the build process will not muck with that file. This file gets created only during designtime, so this file should not actually be existent if you are building from the command line, redirecting output to a different location or if you are building in a build lab.

XML Documentation file is a problem with C# projects - I will raise this issue with the team. In the mean time, I am resolving this bug as By Design (with respect to vshost). We will make the best attempt at getting XML Documentation file participating in Clean as VB project do today.
