Sometimes, after deleting a file outside Visual Studio, the navigation toolbar (ctrl+,) gets stuck.  

Reported at

Add a file to project, then delete that file but not in the project.

Sometimes, when intellisense fails to update in time, the navigate popup (ctrl+,) can list this false file. 

If you try to open this file from navigator, the navigator will go into bug state and remains on screen , unable to close, unable to navigate into any file.

It seems like some internal exception is not caught.

This problem is especially bad with large c++ project.

I turned off the navigator preview option, if that matters.
