When accessing files on file server volumes, the Windows Vista or Windows 7 workstation will lock up / freeze / blue screen of death / crash without any apparent cause.  This has been seen when transferring files with various applications such as Lotus Notes and Novell GroupWise.  It can also happen when opening Microsoft Word, Excel, Access or PowerPoint files.

The blue screen dump may mention nccache.sys and/or ncpl.sys.


Fixed in Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows, or later.
