[253] VS 2005 Startup problems

I uninstalled 252, installed 253 and started Visual Studio. I saw the
Resharper: initializing menus message followed by "Resharper initialized" in
the status bar. When I clicked in the window, I got the dreaded message from
my COM+ days about Visual Studio waiting for another process and a question
whether I wanted to switch to the process or continue waiting (sorry, didn't
get a screendump or exact text).

I waited several minutes but eventually had to kill denenv in task manager.
This happened a couple times, so I tried starting a second instance of VS
2005 (while the first one was "waiting") just in case I could manage to grab
a stack dump. Fortunately this worked, and after obtaining the stack dump
and killing both instances of devenv, I was able to start Visual Studio
normally again :-p  Somehow the second instance cleaned up the problem(?)

Anyway, not expecting any response to this strange bug report either, here's
the stack dump I managed to get hold on in case you need it.  This was one
of three threads running, and the only one I managed to get the call stack
