I Have an outstanding query with DocHelp about the fact that actual
W2K12 behavior does not conform to the spec (including the product

Attached are two captures that show the changes:

Frames 15 and 16 on w2k08-smb2-compound-invalid4.pcap show what W2K08
does, while frames 15 and 16 on
w2k12-smb2-compound-invalid4-smaller.pcap show how W2K12 behaves, if I
have the right problem.

If not I will have to check it out over the weekend and get you captures.
