Invalid handle error when attempting to copy to a UNC path that contains a Directory Map object

Environment

Novell Client for Vista 1.0.0 Login
Novell Client 2 for Windows Vista/2008
Novell Client 2 SP1 for Windows Vista
Novell Client 2 SP1 for Windows Server 2008
Novell Client 2 SP1 for Windows 7
Novell Client 2 SP1 for Windows Server 2008 R2

Situation

The error occurs only when the Directory Map is accessed over UNC - not if a drive is mapped. 

Trying to copy files to a UNC path like \\TREE\.DirectoryMap.Novell\folder will fail.
 
To replicate this condition open Microsoft explorer and attempt to drag and drop files from one location to a UNC path that points to a Novell directory mapped object.

Resolution

Fix included in Novell Client 2 SP1 for Windows (IR5). The Readme is located at https://download.novell.com/Download?buildid=rY6Gct-vl9U~.
