When an add-in causes a stack overflow, Visual Studio crashes with the message "Microsoft Visual Studio has encountered a problem and needs to close" rather than catching and showing the exception. This problem happens in VS 2005 and 2008 but didn't happen in VS.NET 2003.

I am not sure if this happens in VS 2010 CTP since I can't test it anymore.

Thanks for your feedback. We are escalating this bug to the product unit who works on that specific feature area. The team will review this issue and make a decision on whether they will fix it or not for the next release.
