Btw. I'd even call this a bug in Visual Studio - VS shouldn't allow an Add-In
to freeze the IDE.

There's nothing we can do about this unless we write our own kind of remoting
layer with timeouts, and I have no idea how difficult that'd be.

Rewriting all remoting calls to async is not an option - there are simply way
too many of them.

If we can do anything about this at all, then it must be some mechanism on the
remoting layer which automatically aborts a remote call with an exception after
some timeout period - but then you'd have to configure which methods should
have timeouts and which shouldn't.

So let's simply fix the underlying problem, make sure the server never freezes
and we're good.

A server crash isn't a problem btw., since this'd throw a remoting exception.
