Visual Studio 2005 "kindly" starts an development server per project

I have a solution containing both WinForms and projects. There is nothing wrong with this. However, when I set a configuration that runs only a single WinForms project where all of the projects aren’t even marked for build and start debugging I still get an development server per project – that’s two development servers for me. Or better, that’s two useless, memory and CPU cycles wasting development servers running in background.

One would think that this is some sort of bug, so did I. But hey, no, this is by design:

Isn’t that generous from Visual Studio 2005 – to give me more than I asked for?

Anyway, I’ve reopened bug report:
