It's difficult to send you a demo source which illustrates the problem. The
project I work on is quite a huge one and still it hasn't been uploaded and
all modules are connected one to another. The other difficulty here is that
this exception does not have a certain sequence of actions I perform when it
occurs. Sometimes it is thrown sometimes - not. Odd job definetely. I got it
when I try to access a share on a computer inside our LAN. We got a domain
running on Win2000 Server and workstations using Win NT 4.0 SP6 or
