Visual Studio 2008 Web projects brought to a crawl by client components



I'm still experiencing serious Visual Studio 2008 performance difficulties when referencing BO components.

- Empty (brand new w/ default settings) Web project with no BO references: 50 seconds to open

- Empty Web project WITH BO reference (data source, referencing CrystalDecisions.Enterprise, etc.): 5 minutes to open

The only difference between the two empty projects with default settings is the BO data source reference (referencing the CrystalDecisions assemblies in web.config).

Do others share this problem? As mentioned the only thing I'm doing is referencing BO components from an empty project, which goes from 50 seconds to 5 minutes to open (on a fairly configured machine w/ 2GB RAM and problems with no other development tools/applications).
