If a dataset contains a table with a self-referencing relation, attempting to use "Retrieve Details" in the XtraGrid grid designer with the grid bound to that table will cause Visual Studio 2005 to abort after 5-10 seconds.
I see knowledge base article A1600 has information about using self-referencing tables, and there are cases where this kind of relation makes sense. It definitely shouldn't cause visual studio to crash.
Steps to Reproduce:
The attached sample has a form with a XtraGrid. It is bound to a dataset, and a specific data table within that dataset.
Open the form in the designer, then select the "Retrieve Details" button. VS05 will abort after a few seconds.
If you remove the self-referencing relation in the CrashOccurrences table, the crash no longer happens. The relation is DuplicateOf to CrashOccurrence_ID in the same table.
VS05 "needs to close"
DevEx should be able to process tables that have self-referencing relations. It should be possible to have a detail table that is the same as the master table (as indicated by A1600). If this is not possible, it should at least be detected and handled by the XtraGrid.
