Status: Resolved

Update 120417: Persistence pays off... ;) Finally I've got this hotfix approved, and committed for release in June timeframe (REL12-06, KB2701239)! Resolving this issue now.

Yesterday I noticed an lpq.exe-related crash case in our queue. When I had a look at the dump, I noticed we now have three customers hitting this problem, both on Win2008 and on Win2008R2. I am curious to see if any other people are hitting this as well, since we do not have filed a hotfix request for this yet.

The dump shows the service is just starting up, and crashes with a heap corruption:

FAILURE_BUCKET_ID:  STATUS_HEAP_CORRUPTION_AFTER_CALL_c0000374_lpq.exe!main
