Link of the day:

Basically, if you use the latest version of their software, and enable buffer overrun protection, it will break applications that use the .NET framework (e.g. programs written in VB.NET or C#). In particular, you get message boxes with blank messages/buttons, and list boxes that contain blank items. We wasted several hours today trying to figure out the problem before we tracked it down to that...
