Popups dismiss almost immediately (Context Actions, Quick Documentation...)

The last several nightly builds I have tried (755 and 766 amongst others) work ok in VS2005 but in VS2008 the popups dismiss almost immediately.

Some sample logs follow (with annotations) for attempting to use a Context Action:
I clicked on the underline causing the BulbIndicator to display

6:34:57 PM.223: Thread:1: ShowWindow is about to happen for JetBrains.ReSharper.Daemon.Impl.Indicators.BulbIndicator.
I then clicked on the bulb to ideally display the popup but it closes almost immediately

Should I add this to some sort of bug tracker?

I just tried 775 and still have the problem.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

I'm going through withdrawal symptoms here! :(

773 seems to be the last really stable version for me. Try uninstalling and going back to it until things calm down a bit.

Thanks for that.

Unfortunately none of the builds I've tried work for me. They all have the popup bug and various other issues.

I've signed up and logged the bug and will try a build every now and again (when they mark a Works here build I guess).

Hello,

This case is unique, so I cannot figure out any possible reason for such
behavior.

I'd look for any nonstandard settings and plugins in Visual Studio, as well
as system-wide. It looks like someone is stealing focus from the menu when
it opens, so the menu dismisses immediately after it. Some focus tracking
tool might help.

Hi Serge,

Thanks for replying. I was so wrapped that more recent builds worked I forgot to update things here, though I am pretty sure I amended the bug report.

I've already paid for my license upgrade to 4.0 :)
