After adding a resource string, I get the message: "This file has been modified outside the code editor. Do you want to reload it?"

Then, if I do, I can see the entry in the resource file, but VB2005's code editor window shows a wavy line under the resource entry "My.Resources.MyResxFile.TheEntry" and the message is "TheEntry is not a member of My.Resources.MyResxFile".

If I choose not to reload it, the entry does not appear in the resource file.

It was working before..

This probably happens because resource file you are editing is open in the editor. Even though wavy lines appear after you reload, did you try compiling the project? Since resource file is active, editor might not have correct intellisense info at that point.
