Why would I be getting a NullReferenceException in Windows Forms with no application code in the call stack

The CLR is catching an Access Violation that’s being thrown from unmanaged code, and that is propagating up as a NullReferenceException. I’ve seen this happen with certain common control library windows types if an application such as spy++ is running, and I see this is the TreeView control that is having troubles with a mouse down. Have you done any modification to the control through P/Invoke methods?
