that's normal.  i suggest you report it on ntbugtraq and securityfocus.
don't mention my name: after i sent in a report to ntbugtraq, certain

nothing can get done because they're focussing on the latest version of
nt, which isn't out yet...

*sigh*.  can you get me either a debug log level 100 or a netmon trace,
