Configure WSS 3.0 List data source exists abruptly when you type in a single character to the interface

description

Whenever I go to the "Configure Data Source" user interface, and type anything into any drop down, the window closes abruptly without changing any of the configured data.
 
For example, I type anything into the list name drop down or when "Use explicite URL is selected, when I type anything in the "SharePoint site URL", this behavior occurs.
 
These are the steps I used to get the project and use it. Please let me know if I am doing something wrong.
I created a new web application, added a reference to the .dll which copied it to the bin directory of the current project. Then I added the control to the toolkit, and used that to drop the control onto the design surface of my .aspx page. Then I go to the "Configure Data Source" option and see the user interface. That is where I type anything in the drop down and the window closes.
 
This project looks really beneficial, thanks for sharing it!

This happens to me too. My workaround is typing the sample code that you can find on the Home tab above, customize a bit, and then you can open the Configure Data Source window and it works... But there is a problem with the Fields collection: The config window displays different fields as typed in the source code... Also, I get error saying that Fields collection can't be set up, here and then and you have to delete the Fields in the source code and set them up again in the config window.
