This error is caused by a Microsoft bug. You will need to contact Microsoft PSS (Product Support Services) about it.

[The following description of how PSS works is from the description in microsoft.public.sqlserver.server by Neil Pike, MVP/MCSE, Protech Computing Ltd.]

Microsoft PSS are people who support all Microsoft's products, write fixes, take the calls, sort out workarounds etc. They work 24x7x365. The only way to contact them to place an initial call is by phone (unless you have a premier support contract in which case there are web based methods). For details of your nearest PSS support center go to:

All calls are chargeable either to your credit card or an existing account. Your call fee WILL be reimbursed if the problem turns out to be an Microsoft bug, or a feature that hasn't been publicly documented. The person answering the phone cannot know it's a bug, so they have to take details of your credit card before passing you on to a technician. When the call is closed the technician decides whether to mark the call as "free" in which case you get a refund automatically.

Good Luck,
