I see two solutions:

1) Either the special text box control is very closely interconnected to
all other projects. In that case all projects should live in the same
repository and have a global revision number that describes the state of
the whole set of projects.

2) Or the special text box control is loosely related to the other
projects. In that case it lives a life of its own and it should be made
available through proven methods: software releases, versioning, etc.
Typically you would never synchronize with the HEAD revision of the
special text box control, instead you would synchronize with a specific tag.

Anyway, what are you afraid of? What could happen to the special text
box control and to your other projects during the build process? What is
the probablity that happens in the short term? And if that happens,
can't it be fixed without too much hassle?
