I had problems with it before that. We got hit with an attack on SQL 2000 servers (it was an attack that affected many) - it's been 20 years so I don't remember the nature of it, but I do remember Microsoft basically screwing everyone and taking their own sweet time.

Since then, I've seen problems with 2005, and 2008. Probably patched now, but you can't afford to run their latest bits for years.

It's ridiculous. We wound up going back to 4 and implementing an OLE DB compliant SQLXML compatible layer on top of that.
