    Microsoft has confirmed that calling EnableVisualStyles in the main method resulting in some ImageList corruption is a bug. There however seems to be a workaround posted by Martin Robins in the newsgroup which worksaround this issue:

    
    public virtual void Main() { 
    Application.EnableVisualStyles(); 
    // Calling DoEvents after the above method call seems to fix this issue:
    Application.DoEvents(); 
    Application.Run(new Form1()); 
    }
