DOTNET renaming a control takes forever

This is annoying as all hell. When you rename a control in .NET using the properties window... it takes forever, which is way too long.

It takes so long because Visual Studio uses a process called rename-refactor which renames all the occurrences of the selected control throughout the whole project. It is especially annoying when its a new control on the page and you rename it from it's default name ie "textbox1" to something meaningful - "txtMeansAlot" and it takes 5 minutes to finish. Gimme a break!

I just want to rename the sucker and continue coding. The sure fire way around this is to just rename it in source code mode, but apparently there's a hot fix located here:http://support.microsoft.com/kb/939520. Comment if it works for anyone.
