I need #sqlhelp! BIDS shuts down unexpectedly

I have MS Visual Studio 2008 (BIDS) x86 with SP1.  Recently it’s started shutting down without warning whenever I hit “preview” on a SSRS report. Google hasn’t helped, and I didn’t get much love on #sqlhelp (the Twitter hashtag for SQL help), so I thought I’d ask my adoring public: WTH??

This problem DOES NOT appear to be limited to a particular solution, nor to a particular report. However, I have narrowed it down to only reports that use parameters.

If and when I find a resolution, I’ll post it here for posterity and for all time.

Error from App log:

A grateful MidnightDBA thanks you,

Any chance you have DENALI CTP 1 installed? I had LOTS of trouble with BIDS when I had Denali installed. I uninstalled and BIDS went back to working again. Co-worker had the same problem.
