Issues with the Novell Client for Windows Vista and W7 Posted on 16 February 2009 under NetWare (Updated 03 May 2010)

There appears to be an issue with the Novell Client for Windows Vista and W7 which can cause programs to terminate unexpectedly without error, terminate with oddball errors, or terminate with an application error. The problem appears to be due to memory corruption occurring during initialization of the X-plat libraries, creation of context handles, or creation of server connection handles. The readme for the post SP1 IR1 update lists bug 433909 where a request for connection information could cause a BSOD. I suspect another issue of similar nature is still present in the client.
