Clearing the Items collection of a combobox fails

I sometimes get a COM exception when I attempt to clear the Items collection of an ADXCommandBarCombobox

The COM exception is something with a bad index:
(Exception from HRESULT: 0x8002000B (DISP_E_BADINDEX))

The code that fails is this:

if (comboBox.Items.Count > 0)

I don't get this, as I am not using any indexes. Why is this exception thrown?

Hi Stig.

Does the issue still exist? It can happen when the combo box is disabled and you are trying to clear it.
