I found yet another bug in devstudio. This one has to do with the format of their .sln files.
Project("{2150E333-8FDC-42A3-9474-1A3956D46DE8}") = "Test", "Test", "{C91DBE2D-B696-47DB-A04D-483D0E109321}"
	ProjectSection(SolutionItems) = preProject
		test.xslt = test.xslt
		TextFile1.txt = TextFile1.txt
	EndProjectSection
EndProject


I bolded the bit that's the problem. Spot it yet?
There are no quotes, and = is a valid filename character.

The upshot is this. If you add a file to your "Solution Folders" (a feature that has always been kludgy) and then rename it to include an = then the file will not get saved as part of the solution, meaning it won't be listed under solution folders next time you load.

I only discovered this because I needed to write a tool that could read the solution folder items from a solution file.

What a mess. Who codes this stuff? Unsure | :~
