VS.NET peeve OTD

While I'm geeking out this morning, who the heck thought it would be a good idea for Visual Studio .NET[Wiki] to occasionally (and apparently randomly) throw away event handling for forms controls?

Examples please?

Do you mean events are getting passed to your handlers or do some abstractions of the form control lack event handling?!?

I mean that occasionally, over there on the right under "Properties" when you click on the little lightning bolt to see the attached events, the events have gone away. Sometimes a number of controls, sometimes one or two.

Ah... So the VS environment is the culprit... I won't even begin to comment on the VS environment...
