SYMPTOMS

Using the sp_cursoropen stored procedure with any cursor type causes a handled access violation (AV) on the initial execution after loading a database.

If a trace flag 7502 is enabled, SQL Server returns error 225 to the client:
Cannot run query--referenced object (name NAME NOT RECOVERABLE) dropped during query optimization on the execution.
After the AV occurs, an attempt to load the database again gives the message "database in use." A look at sysprocesses shows no associated spids.

WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, try to execute the stored procedure again. At the second and later execution, the problem does not occur.
