Is there a fix or patch for this bug? I haven't been able to find any
direct information on what versions aren't affected by this bug. I know a
couple of people that run small websites using this thing (unfortunately).

Does this only occur on Win9x? Has anyone been able to reproduce this?
Jan, which OS/SP were you running?
I vaguely remember some discussion (in BugTraq or NTBugTraq maybe?) about
using "..." and/or "...." from the command prompt, and this is probably
to that problem.
