Build (web): Object '[...].rem' has been disconnected or does not exist at the server

We had this constantly during a build (during the validation part) of a web application in Visual Studio 2008.  I think it occurred just after the machine name changed, but cannot be sure.

We also got the error 'The application domain in which the thread was running has been unloaded'; but only once.

We opened a Microsoft Support case for it - they managed to suppress the error by putting the following in the web.config



<compiler language="c#"

type="Microsoft.CSharp.CSharpCodeProvider, System, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=B77A5C561934E089" extension=".cs" compilerOptions="/nostdlib /d:DEBUG;TRACE /warnaserror-" warningLevel="0"/>

<!-- /nowarn:0162,0108,0114,0252 -->



Under "configuration".

We're still waiting on a response from MS Support and we believe it's an MS bug.  At least with the above, it's possible to get on with the job!



OK, this bug has been sent via Redmond and I had a response today: "As a follow up to your question below… We investigated this area and it came out to be a known bug which we are fixing in SP1 version of ASP.NET…  So do ask Kristan to look forward to it".
