Hotfix XE102W005
Filename: XE102W005.MSI
For: MetaFrame XP 1.0 for Windows 2000
Replaces: XE102W002
Date: May 29, 2002
Language supported: English (US)
File Download: ftp://ftp.citrix.com/metaXP/W2K/XE102W005.MSI

NOTE: This hotfix can be applied only to a Windows 2000 Server with
MetaFrame XP Version 1.0 with Feature Release 2/Service Pack 2


This hotfix resolves the following issues:
1. Under certain conditions, the session monitoring and control (SMC)
API would obtain incorrect information for ICA sessions.

During an ICA session, the session ID parameter was set to the
current session ID. When the session was terminated, the session ID
was not reset and the same session ID was erroneously used for the
next ICA session.

With a modification to software code, this behavior no longer occurs.
[From Hotfix XE102W002]

2. Sometimes ICA sessions would hang and eventually would disconnect.
This was caused by a problem in the code that buffers the ICA packets
sent to the client. If the buffer filled up, the code would enter a
wait loop that could not be preempted. This used all the CPU and
subsequent attempts to log on were very slow.

A modification to the code permits flushing the buffer when it
becomes full, thereby making room for additional data to be sent to
the client.
