Well, there is no SP2 fix which is "critical" for me. Most important are
the security fixes and stability improvements that every Service Pack has,
see David's posting.

There is a difference: Missing AD and Kerberos support is a documented
missing feature. Not being able to log on with SP2 is a bug in a feature
documented to work.

Of course. I just wanted to suggest to wait a few days for a (potentially
trivial) fix for this severe bug.
