2. When I tested LSADump2 on various Windows boxes, not all fully
patched boxes were affected by this issue. What configuration of
Windows is exactly causing "lsass" to fail?

Perhaps it could be hw issue? I've experienced the same behaviour on itanium 
(w2k3/ia64 server); suppose amd64 (with wxp/64) could behave the same way. 
Problem was the code injected - it was compiled for i386, and could not be 
executed as thread inside 64bit task. AFAIK, dll injection cannot be directly 
ported to ia64 platform by eg. recompilation only, as procedure calling 
mechanism is quite different.
