* Start MD (2.8.5)
* Open a solution
* do something
* Open another solution (without closing the current solution)
* do something
* Close all solutions
* Open the second solution

The code is loaded, eveyting looks OK. HOWEVER, The solution explorer remains blank.  The problem appears to get fixed if you shut down and restart MD.

BTW: Never had this happen prior to MD 2.8.5

Thanks so much for taking the time to submit this report! I attempted to reproduce this issue based on the bug description with the latest Visual Studio 2017 for Mac Preview version 7.2, and I was unable to hit the problem. If this issue is still occurring for you, please reopen this report and attach a reproduction, ideally starting with a new template project and then adding just the code necessary to demonstrate the issue.

Closing all solutions results in going back to the main menu.
