Installed this today and compared to the release, the docking manager is just unusable.
Way too many instances of the app just crashing or the docking windows (user controls) just disappearing.

The disappearing happens quite often when it is the only control attached the docking manager and you attempt to dock it to the far left or far right.

You folks have got to get a handle on your testing procedures.

And just in case the problem is somewhere else: please don't put your developers under too high pressure. Let them fulfill, what they think is necessary. Good results need time.

My app uses user controls that are docked. It doesn't dock panels directly at all. It has one basic form that loads the user controls onto the docking manager. I'm using the VS2005 look and feel.
