Ahhh! You have just described the FFFFOO effect (Files Flying Folder to Folder Out of Oblivion).

We've experienced a similar kludge, although the error is rarely fatal.

I expect Microsoft to post the patch on Windows Update once it's been compiled...

We are also using our own product within our Intra-/Extranet. However, we
have been stumbling quite often over bugs in Microsoft's WebDAV client
implementation. Only two weeks ago we have escalated a WebFolder problem to
Redmond and hope to get a hotfix soon. It was about freezing Windows
Explorer (and thus the whole desktop) whenever a user hits the Cancel button
while uploading. The MS WebDAV client then stops to upload but the TCPIP
connection stays open. Our server runs into a timeout, IIS doesn't (at least
not within reasonable time)
