Tangible Thoughts SharePoint, MOSS? and all the other questions

Heres a patch for SharePoint that I didn’t know existed.

Its pretty old too (dated 10/15/2003) and that’s the bit that has me puzzled. Wasn’t SharePoint released in October 2003. That would mean this patch came out 15 days after the product release.

Can't remember the launch date but I remember having to apply this patch due to a rapidly filling hard drive (see my old portal news section here: http://randomelements.me.uk/txtlstvw.aspx?LstID=39bed012-7512-4b9a-879b-f79b3e9f158b)

and what's more it's not listed in the MS Articles section of the WSS FAQ either. (It is now)

The date is funny, but it's specific to .NET, not SharePoint.

By the way: Before applying this patch, has anyone noticed a bunch of JIT'd PERL files in their temp directory?

This patch is usually needed when you have anonymous users accessing your site. If I remember it has something to do with a .NET framework bug in conjunction with the way SharePoint uses impersonation. I did have one environment that was setup to be all anonymous and after initial load testing we had thousands of files in that directory which eventually caused lots of fragmentation.
