VS.NET 2005 Publishing SignTool Confusion

I really am made uncomfortable when I get messages like:

SignTool reported an error 'Unable to load one or more of the requested types. Retrieve the LoaderExceptions property for more information.'.

...and they are fixed by restarting Visual Studio. Additionally, I'm not sure what the LoadedExceptions property is or where I'm to find it.

This happened over lunch as I was publishing a ClickThrice application to hanselman.com. I'd had a solution with three projects that was building and publishing fine. I moved two of the libraries from Project references to direct assembly (lib) references and rebuilt. Everything rebuilt fine, ran fine, but publishing was broken. Visual Studio 2005 crash, Dr. Watson announced his concern, I killed all devenv.exes and started afresh. Works now. Woof.

That said, MSBUILD still kicks the llama's ass.
