FIX: The CREATE PROCEDURE statement does not run when you try to run the statement to create a stored procedure that contains a very large amount of text in SQL Server 2005

Extended support for SQL Server 2005 ends on April 12, 2016

If you are still running SQL Server 2005 after April 12, 2016, you will no longer receive security updates and technical support. We recommend upgrading to SQL Server 2014 and Azure SQL Database to achieve breakthrough performance, maintain security and compliance, and optimize your data platform infrastructure. Learn more about the options for upgrading from SQL Server 2005 to a supported version here.

Bug: #50001857 (SQL Hotfix)
Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2005 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2005 fix release.
SYMPTOMS
Consider the following scenario in Microsoft SQL Server 2005. You use the CREATE PROCEDURE statement to create a stored procedure. The stored procedure contains a very large amount of text. In this scenario, when you try to run the statement, it does not run. Additionally, the following error message is logged in the SQL Server error log:
Date Time SPID Error: 17065, Severity: 16, State: 1.
Date Time SPID SQL Server Assertion: File: <latch.cpp>, line = 1538 Failed Assertion = '0' Attempted release of unacquired latch. This error may be timing-related. If the error persists after rerunning the statement, use DBCC CHECKDB to check the database for structural integrity, or restart the server to ensure in-memory data structures are not corrupted.
Date Time SPID Error: 3624, Severity: 20, State: 1.
Date Time SPID A system assertion check has failed. Check the SQL Server error log for details. Typically, an assertion failure is caused by a software bug or data corruption. To check for database corruption, consider running DBCC CHECKDB. If you agreed to send dumps to Microsoft during setup, a mini dump will be sent to Microsoft. An update might be available from Microsoft in the latest Service Pack or in a QFE from Technical Support.
When this issue occurs, a minidump file is generated in the SQL Server log folder.
CAUSE
This issue occurs because SQL Server 2005 tries to release a latch lock. When you run a CREATE PROCEDURE statement that contains a very large amount of text, the SQL Server 2005 worker thread performs a context switch. Then, the SQL Server 2005 worker thread tries to release a latch lock.
RESOLUTION
The fix for this issue was first released in Cumulative Update 5. For more information about how to obtain this cumulative update package for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

Note Because the builds are cumulative, each new fix release contains all the hotfixes and all the security fixes that were included with the previous SQL Server 2005 fix release. Microsoft recommends that you consider applying the most recent fix release that contains this hotfix.

By default, any hotfix that is provided in a SQL Server service pack is included in the next SQL Server service pack.
STATUS
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
