If I open a solution that is offline (TFS 2010 is down for example) and then click on "File > Source Control > Go Online" when the TFS server is back online, it causes the IDE to automatically open all data connections in server explorer and enumerate its child nodes.

With existing projects, when I attempt to go online, the same error occurs for each Team Project that is part of a Collection until it reaches the project I am attempting to go online with. Once the series of connections reaches the project in question, pending changes are noted and resolved. There is no way to access the 'Pending Changes Tool Window' until this operation completes successfully, for the application is frozen.

When 'Filter by Solution' is clicked in the associated window, it appears as though only changes to the active solution are shown...which is good, however I am not certain that it will resolve the issue of going back online.

Thank you for reporting this problem. It's caused by a combination of "Filter by solution" feature turned on in Pending Changed Tool Window and database connections existing in server explorer. As a workaround please turn off "Filter by solution" option in Pending Changes Tool Window. This bug will be fixed in future version of Visual Studio.
