[RESOLVED] Win2008SP2: 0xc0000005 in wsxica!GetAutologonCredentials3+ab1

Status: Resolved, external.

Update 121122: Shame on me for not updating this yet... Citrix eventually resolved this issue, please contact them when you encounter the issue below.

At the moment we are working together with Citrix on an issue where the Terminal Service svchost.exe process crashes in wsxica!GetAutologonCredentials3+ab1. This looks to be caused by heap corruption.

!analyze -v will show you "X64APPLICATION_FAULT_INVALID_POINTER_READ_wsxica!GetAutologonCredentials3+ab1" and in the current dump I have, which unfortunately is only a user mini dump, the stack of the crashing thread looks like:

0:044> knL
 # Child-SP          RetAddr           Call Site
00 00000000`20d6e8f0 00000000`00000040 wsxica!GetAutologonCredentials3+0xab1

03 00000000`20d6e908 00000000`00000001 0x1
04 00000000`20d6e910 00000000`00000000 0x1

To get to this stack you will also need to add the Citrix Symbol Server (http://ctxsym.citrix.com/symbols) to your symbol path, using .sympath+. When dumping the raw stack this gives a bit more information:

Using gflags.exe we enabled pageheap, and we are currently awaiting further data to analyze. If you experience this issue, please drop me an e-mail.
