Anyone seen this one assertion or know what it is?

*** Assertion failed: NodeLongNameIsLongName ||
(RtlCompareUnicodeString(&ShortName, LongNameKey, TRUE) == 0)
*** Source File: d:\w7rtm\base\strongbox\luafv\driver\filelist.c, line 4890

    No idea...Did you dump out the unicode strings passed to RtlCompareUnicodeString? Based on the appearance of "long name" in the ASSERT I'd guess a name that wasn't properly normalized someplace. But, that's a guess.

    From what I could dump, I had ProgramData and Progra~1 strings. Which
    would not be the case, as Program Files in Progra~1.
