Cumulative update package 4 for SQL Server 2005 Service Pack 2

Microsoft’s getting a little punchy!

An access violation occurs in the “sqlservr!BufferPartition::Steal” function, and SQL Server stops responding.

Committing an access violation is the definition of stealing, no? So this seems like perfectly normal behavior for a steal function!

I like that SQL Server appears to get mad and ignore you when you the buffer manager starts stealing. This confirms my suspicion that SQL Server is actually an obnoxious child.
