Period Key Closes Dialog Box in Visual Studio

I had an issue in the Workflow Rule Set Editor dialog box in Visual Studio 2008 SP1 while entering a Condition pressing the period (or dot) key would suddenly close the window. I tracked it down to being an Intellisense issue since it was only occurring after an object name was typed followed by the period key. However in the code designer Intellisense was working fine. Through trial and error, I found that removing my Project References and re-adding them made the problem go away.
