Ok this is lightly nuts. Happened on Monday, and suddenly just happened
to me today.

Try to start the driver, and most of it loads, then it gets a fatal
error at:

1417 is an NMAS error that the length of the data is wrong.

Single server tree, eDir 885 64 bit, IDM 3.6.1a 64 bit, patched up the
wazo. This is a SOAP driver. (3.5.4 rev).

Last time I thought it was my boss in his Designer, deploying a UA PRD
somehow doing it, but this time he has been away from his computer for
the last 2 hours. No one else is accessing this tree.

Ok, so last time I do not recall what I had done immediatly before
hand. This time I do.

I had deleted 4 Aux classes I had added, so I could delete 2 attributes
(custom, only ever added to my Aux classes), so I did. Used Designer's
Schema compare to push my fixed attrs, and 4 object classes back out.

Then I made Filter and Schema map changes, compared, and it showed
those changes, but like the last time, one of the hints was that the
DirXML-DriverImage attr was out of sync, which throws a Designer error
(does not like to compare binary data, no biggy).

Then the ECV's were all resorted, but not changed and 2 of the GCV's
went from being multi line string (in my project) to single line strings
in the project.

I can delete the driver, redeploy and it works, but what is going on

Designer 3.5.1 with the March update, on Win XP SP3.
