Yikes. What does this program do? It's endless Node Status and Trans2QueryInformation requests.

	You difinately need tid2. It has to be the tree id of the tree (a.k.a. share) that the other file is in. But from examining the below it should work because the shares (and therefore tids) are
the same. It's possible that the packet encoding isn't quite right since the last time this method was used. Try useUnicode=false just as an exercise. I think you'd really need to break out Ethereal
or NetMon and just compare each field byte for byte. THat's what I would do.

	Yeah, this all should work. It looks right. PS you can easily get tid2 from dest.tree.tid. Then, presuming, you get it working you can also do copies accross shares without going through the
client. If I have time, maybe I'll look into fixing this.

	That 'test' directory exists right?
