Thank you for discovering this error. The root cause of this is when there is xaml that is invalid -- such as:

<Window x:Class="WpfApp.Window1" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"
    xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"
    Title="Window1" Height="300" Width="300">
    <Grid>
        <TextBlock Text="DummyTextBlock">
            <ToolTip></ToolTip> <===== Tooltip is not valid here.
        </TextBlock>
    </Grid>
</Window>

This causes VS to crash.
VS 2008 SP1 should be more robust in the way it handles these cases. Thank you for submitting this problem.
