Re: KB924615 causes IE6 to crash
As you noted, it appears that 946627 fixes the issue (for 942615 which I
miskeyed in the original post). We will test this asap. Looks like I should
have checked back there one more time before I posted in the forums.
As a side note, the sp3 beta (thanks for the clarification) that we tried
caused the same urlmon.dll issue. I thought the same thing as you mentioned,
but was surprised when we got the failure results on our test platforms.
