The larger ribbon width, the later crash occurs

Hi cuijiemmx,

We shipped the Ribbon control as is.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to look into this in the near future.  Right now we're heads down on .NET 4.0 and it will take a while until we can devote resources to Ribbon.  Sorry for the inconvenience.

I am receiving this exact same bug, but in a slightly different context.  I get the same exception whenever I have enough ribbon groups/content in ribbon groups that the content goes beyond the bounds of the ribbon/window that is containing it.  The exception gets thrown as clean-up is occurring on the content.
