NT4 is older, I run 2000 and before that its beta's on my work space for 24
hours/a week since early 2000.

A corrupt handle will be detected, since the object on the kernel side won't
be valid. (a handle is kind of an index/pointer into an object list on the
kernel side, the object itself has probably some corruption detection

To me, it sounds more like an alignment or typing error in some record
structure you use to pass a record to the kernel than a rotten handle.

But first we must pinpoint the exact call. Increase the granularity of
your error detection (getlasterror or so) should do that.

Does somebody know something more about Winapi errorhandling? Please step
forward :_)
