I wouldn't be surprised if this was caused by improper memory management ontoggle quoted messageShow quoted text
unload (I actually wrote this kind of Highlander Protocol for the sfc
driver). These are the things that I would check:
0. If a newer driver exists in the system, the loading driver should just
exit without doing anything.
1. If the current driver finds an older driver in the system, it should
only call LoadedImage->Unload() on the image handle, nothing more.
2. The old driver should perform protocol uninstallation in its Unload()
function - it should clean up after itself perfectly. (This is where most
of the problems will likely lie)
3. The new driver can proceed with loading as normal.
This can and should be tested by taking each driver and repeatedly
loading and unloading it (the same driver) in shell - you will likely catch
a few bugs this way. Then you can add tests for two different versions
interacting with each other.
