Whatever the case explorer.exe shouldn't crash on any data
returned from the server. If it does that's a possible
security flaw and you should report it immediately to
Microsoft (I just fixed a similar problem with libsmbclient
in our recent security release, that's why I'm sensitive
to these things).
