An application being run from a file server terminates with an access violation for no apparent reason.
The redirector is sending a LogoffAndX SMB to terminate a virtual circuit to a file server while there is still at least one active TreeConnect to the server. As a result any existing files that are being held open by the workstation on the server become invalid. If an application is being run on the workstation which uses DLLs held on the file server, it can no longer access the DLLs it requires and will probably cause an Access Violation.
