Default Issues with Eleven Rack. Again.

So, a few weeks back, I thought my Eleven rack issue had resolved itself when I installed 8.0.3cs1, and that I could now happily keep my Eleven Rack and my 003 Rack both connected and happy.

This is most definitely not the case anymore.

Randomly (only about 1/4 time) Protools will open fine and dandy, find all my DAEs and load up everything needed. Then, the fun starts when we open a session.

Protools finds the Eleven, as well as my 003 Rack. And it begins "Getting Rig Layouts". And it keeps at it. Over. And over. and over. Ad infinitum. I check my CPU usage, and it's at 2-5%. So I'm not overpowering my CPU. And it doesn't seem to be DOING anything. Just background processes as usual. (And no, I don't have anything on my system that would conflict with it...I don't think.)
Assuming that I get lucky and this is one of the 3/4 of the times it gets the rig layouts from my ElevenR, I run into a whole new stock of hell.
If I try to open the Eleven control window in Protools, CRASH. A high pitched sin wave and Protools appears to resize itself to massive proportions that stretch off both my monitors.
Then, we have yet ANOTHER issue. Ground loop that appears to come from...nowhere? I've tried literally everything to reduce that annoying buzz. I've tried putting it on power conditioners. No dice, still a buzz. I've tried using the highest grade cable I could find. Still, buzzing. I've gone as far as to try using one of those gimmicky "Ground Loop Eliminators". Still buzzes like a bee. I even used the taboo 3 to 2 prong converters that just remove the ground from the equation. And not surprisingly, still a buzz.
Is my Eleven just the most problematic one in the world or something? Or are these things just supposed to be nightmarish wastes of time? I love the sounds. I just wish they would go where they're supposed to, not crash my system, and play nice with all my other Digi-Avid junk.
Sad to say, I've owned this thing for a couple of months now, and it's literally just sat in the rack unusable since March. About ready to cut my losses and just sell it.

If anyone would be kind enough as to help, I'd very much appreciate the assistance.

Can you check out the "Help us help you" document and provide the information? Without knowing what OS you're running, what computer model, and other such details, there's just no way to diagnose this.

Make sure to update to Pro Tools 8.0.3cs2 if you haven't already.
