VS 2005 / SQL bench sluggishness

From: Toli B.
Sent on: Monday, February 4, 2008 10:19 AM
I thought since most of us here use corporate builds of XP and VS 2005, i wanted to ask if anyone has experienced sluggishness in Visual Studio 2005, and/or especially in SQL 2005 Management Studio.
SQL 2005 Management Studio becomes very slow, and also slows down the computer when it has been running on the computer for a day or so, even when it's left on without too much activities like opening new query windows, running queries, etc. 
Visual Studio 2005 I think has similar symptoms to above, may be not as pronounced or not as quick. Certainly if I have 3+ instances of VS 2005 at the same time, they do start to clog up. I actually have the SQL 2005 studio's issue filed on connect, but Microsoft said will not address in 2005 edition (may be in 2008 sql bundle).
Especially visible sluggishness in VS 2005 is when I click on Project Properties icon at left top of solution explorer. - when it opens the project properties, seems that every step is taking it extra long time, - opening the panel, resizing the input boxes, etc. 
I don't seem to have these issues when running on my home machine with Windows 2003 Server. 
Work machine is a:

	XP Professional SP2, 
	Has a Clearcase plugin for VS 2005
	Has multiple monitors
	User profile/home directory is roaming/synched to a CIFS-based file share (NetApp filer) - could this introduce a delay?

Has anyone found any remedies to this sluggishness?
could this be some type of DirectX, DCOM or windows objects heap issue?
