Thanks, Tony.
I have downloaded and am testing your replacement client. It is working 
well in test, but I do not think it will solve my problem.
I can't use it in this case since the server in question (Win 2K) does 
not use the .NET framework.
It will not have it loaded anytime soon for a lot of reasons. I'm also 
concerned that if this is a major flaw in the existing NSClient, a lot 
of servers will see the service start failing around the world. I'm 
proceeding to try debugging steps, but I'm hoping someone else has 
already hit (and solved?) this issue.
