Win32Exception: The operation completed successfully

description

I occasionally see this exception, which proceeds to crash the entire application. I can't reproduce the bug reliably—it's a large application and I had left it running in the VS debugger overnight when I last saw the exception. The stack trace is as follows:

I checked the source code for LayoutAutoHideWindowControl.WndProc() and, using the Locals window in VS, it seems that the code for handling WM_WINDOWPOSITIONCHANGING is responsible for the problem. My best guess is that two windows are "fighting" to be top-most.
