The problem from my point of view is, I cannot recreate the crash. My 
feelings are that the OP hasn't set up the share correctly, or hasn't 
mapped root to Administrator. I am testing using a share on a 
raspberrypi and even if I change the directory owner to 'pi', it does 
not crash Windows explorer.
