Environment

Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows 7

Situation

An older DOS application builds a list of folders, then provides a display for the user to select from among the folders. The folder listing contains duplicate entries for the first 7 folders.

Resolution

The fix for this bug has been released in the following patch:

Novell Client 2 SP3 for Windows (IR6) https://download.novell.com/Download?buildid=hRPJ_OZQsIw~

Cause

The first listing is read twice. The first time the directory listing is read, only the first 8 entries are read. The Novell Client then reads the directory listing a second time. This results in duplicate entries for the first 7 directories found.
