Hey Volker,

Agreed, this patch is a modified (and more educated) version of the
patch I submitted to do the same thing back in Sep 2007
rectly--td12808573.html#a12808573) and I know there was more discussion
before that.

I can say that Isilon has been running with this patch for the last 1.5
years on all customer sites AND this is the demonstrable behavior of
Windows in all of our testing.

I concede that some people may be relying on this behavior and would be
willing to parameterize it with the default to Windows behavior if
there's strong dissension?

On the cleanup, yes you're right I'll separate them into different
patches next time.
