Now I remember...

There were traces of this.  Do you still have a pointer?  I'm interested,
because this combination isn't supposed to work in general.  I had some
older traces (probably lost now) from Andrew Bartlett that showed the
client sending Extended Security with DOS status codes, and a W2K server
sent back a garbled DOS error code.  

I think I sent this before, but see the !Alert box here:

Anyway, my guess is that we assumed that this indicated that the 
combination was "invalid" from W2K's point of view.

I'd really like to see a trace of this against a W2K server.

Hmmm...  Mebee someone at Microsoft has been reading my book.  ;)
