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.
Consider the following scenario:
You have a Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Integration Services (SSIS 2005) package.
The SSIS 2005 package transfers data by using Lookup transformations.
The Lookup transformations that are in the SSIS 2005 package run in parallel.
The Lookup transformations are cache enabled and share the same cache area.
You try to run the SSIS 2005 package.
In this scenario, the tasks of the Lookup transformations crash, and you cannot run the SSIS 2005 package successfully.
When this problem occurs, an access violation occurs, and a mini-dump file is generated in the SQL Server Error Dumps folder. By default, the mini-dump file is generated in the following folder:
When the same cache is used by components that are running in parallel data flows, a failure occurs when the shared cache is synchronized.Therefore, the problem that is mentioned in the "Symptoms" section occurs.
The fix for this issue was first released in Cumulative Update 9 for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3. For more information about this cumulative update package, 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. We recommend that you consider applying the most recent fix release that contains this hotfix.

Microsoft SQL Server 2005 hotfixes are created for specific SQL Server service packs. You must apply a SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3 hotfix to an installation of SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 3. By default, any hotfix that is provided in a SQL Server service pack is included in the next SQL Server service pack.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed in the "Applies to" section.
