Ok, I just tested this with the latest CVS and get an
error on both W2K SP2 and Win98 - no explorer hang.

I get identical dialog boxes and error messages when
doing this to a Samba 2.2.1 CVS server and a W2K SP2

If you can't give me a reproducible case for this I'm
going to consider if fixed and go with the release.


Buying an operating system without source is like buying
a self-assembly Space Shuttle with no instructions.
