Has anyone else encountered this?

I loaded up VS2008, and started to port some projects.  I took the time to
do some "housecleaning" at the same time, which meant I had to rearrange some
references.  When I went to "Add Reference" in a project, VS2008 crashed.

Thinking it might be something odd in my project, I simply created a brand
new Windows Forms Application, selected "Add reference" and once again,
crash. ("Visual Studio 2008 has encountered a problem and needs to shut down"
sort of crash)

Obviously, I need to be able to add references.  I'm sure that other people
must be able to do so, but for me, it just crashes.  Any advice on how to fix
