I'm working a small project with a fairly small number of tests, using
NUnit 2.4.8 and 3.0.2749.

Sometime in the past couple of days, every time I debug a test --
whether it passes or fails -- I get a message that "Test Driven .NET
3.0 has stopped working". If I try to detach the debugger at that
point, I get an error that says "ProcessInvocation86.exe: Object is in
a zombie state".

I'm not sure what may have changed with this project: this used to
work fine.I do NOT see this behavior with projects using MbUnit.

Any ideas what might be going on here?

Hi Bryan,

Could you try deleting the contents of the following directory and let
me know if the problem persists:
