was thinking about this after switching off last night,

one possibility is usually when you pass struct/string/buffer parameters to interop you need to allocate and copy the source data into unmanaged memory. (I'm guessing at least one string/pathname in this case)
i.e. use Marshal.AllocHGlobal. otherwise the other processes (explorer) cant see the data (or only see corrupted remnants if they partially see into common space.)

are you doing that?
