We currently have a stand alone instance of WSS 3 on Windows 2003. We are seeing a repeated error in the Event Log. The Event ID is 6398 and 6482 and is saturating the app log. It appears Hotfix http://support.microsoft.com/kb/946517 might resolve but want to exhaust easier options without introducing the hotfix to the environment.
