SQL Server 2005: Database Engine Tuning Advisor error - "Failed to find IPC port"

I've gotten this every once in a while when trying to launch it from Management Studio.  The 'fix' is to keep trying to launch it (sometimes you just try repeatedly, other times, you wait a couple of minutes and try again).

Something about a 'timing issue' between the IPC communications layer and SQL Server.  Yeah, I don't know what that really means either, but that's what I found on various forums.

Update: if you try to cancel a running analysis or kill it, it seems to go bye-bye for good till the next reboot.
