System.ArgumentException: Illegal characters in path

This exception caused me a headache for an hour today on a development web site. After various rebuilds failed to cure the issue, I found out that the aspnet_wp.exe process had somehow become corrupted. Re-saves of the web.config file didn't help, so I opened Task Manager, killed the process and was back up and working again.
