Windows 95 Explorer may stop responding (hang) when copying files or displaying properties of a folder or files that reside on distributed file system (Dfs) shares.
The client is sending a FindFirst SMB to \\DfsServer\RootShare with a path of \\DfsServer\RootShare. The server incorrectly responds with DFS_PATH_NOT_FOUND error.
This response causes a loop to occur between the DFS driver and the vredir on the Windows 95 client.
