Sorry for the late reply.
We were able to reproduce the problem - unfortunately I believe that this Blend issue and we cannot do much to avoid the problem. For example if you remove the grid from the window XAML and remove all references to our dlls - Blend still shows RadGridView markup and the only resolution I've found is to close and reopen the solution.
