Issue(s) Resolved in this Hotfix

 Servers in a farm intermittently experienced a fatal error on Wdica.sys
with stop error 0xC2. This occurred because a thread in Wdica.sys was
attempting to free a variable that had already been freed.

This fix synchronizes access to the variables so the fatal error no longer

[From Hotfix MPSE300W2K3006][#71243]

 Kana lock of Japanese IME turned off unexpectedly when focus was on an ICA
session connecting to a MetaFrame/Windows 2003 Server.

On Windows 2003 Server, the Terminal Service checks the keyboard attribute
before notifying the keyboard drivers of the KANA_LOCK status change. Even
though the client had a Japanese keyboard, MetaFrame was not receiving the
KANA_LOCK flag because the client continued to tell Terminal Services to
recognize the attached keyboard as an English 101 keyboard.

With this fix, even when the client has a Japanese keyboard, the Kana lock
state is preserved.

Gateway 2.0:


Data: ActiveLatencyPeriodInSeconds

This was caused by an error in timing that caused the reusage of a buffer
that was already freed.

This hotfix ensures that the servers no longer experience a fatal error when
connecting through Secure Gateway 2.0 even if the registry key is set with a
non-zero value.
