SP2 and SmartHeap

MicroQuill claims that it is a bug in SP2 that causes
SmartHeap to issue the warning message:

MEM_BAD_POINTER

The offending module in SmartHeap is shw32.dll. I don't
recall the name of the module in SP2 that is being blamed
for the shw32.dll messages.

Anyone encountered this error? If so, do you have a fix?

Thanks,
Bill

MicroQuill's smartheap intercepts and changes the way Windows memory manager
allocates address space. They periodically blame a Microsoft bug for
generating this error and have been doing so for years - See:

MicroQuill claims to have a replacement shw32.dll which will suppress the
SP2 related error message, but you have to request it by e-mail:

Thanks Doug, I've managed to get Microquill to send me a modified
version of the shw32.dll module. I'll install it as soon as the troublesome
ThinkPad becomes available.

MicroQuill's special version of shw32.dll seems to have cleared
up the error messages.
Thanks,
Bill
