So I'm anticipating being done with my work for the evening. I have just a few more things to change on my UI in Visual Studio. The new item requires a new reference. The easiest way to get the correct reference for this particular Telerik component is to drag it from the toolbox onto the design surface. Guess what happens?

The stupid modal dialog in Visual Studio happens. It says, "Removing toolbox content from unregistered assemblies." And at this point it's adding ones that are missing. All in likelihood from upgrading the Telerik components a couple of days ago.

Why in a day in age that Microsoft is pushing asynchronous does something like this stop your work and lock up VS? I would gladly have did it the long way if this had to finish in the background. But, I cannot do anything. It's been chugging away for more than 10 minutes and still going. Hey Microsoft, is this the way to teach by example, or are you telling us to do what you say and not what you do?

tl;dr VS displays modal dialog at the worst times, it cannot be canceled, and you're stuck waiting.
