XQPERR crash on 8.4 solved!:   The XQPERR crash I reported and reproduced has been acknowledged by Engineering: "We debugged the reproducer ... and found that a bug got introduced as part [of the] SYMLINK enhancement on 8.4". Engineering have provided me with a new version of F11BXQP.EXE, which appears to fix the problem. Now I just need the official kit so I can install in production. For reference, the Quix case is QXCM1001219891. (68 words, 1 comments, 0 pings)

XQPERR crash on 8.4 reproducer?:   Recently I published a XQP crash footprint on IA64 8.4. The cause of the crash is quite strange, and appears to be something not correctly handling FCBs describing a directory index being placed on the LRU buffer list. (440 words, 1 comments, 0 pings)
