Subject: Buffer overflow with MS PWS

I don't know if this has ever been reported.  I did check MS Technical
support but didn't find anything.

While goofing with MS Personal Web Server (pws32/2.0.2.1112) that came
packaged with FrontPage 97 and running under NT 3.51 , I found that the
following URL will crash PWS.

http://PWS_Name/1234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234
56789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234567890123456789012345678901234
567890123456789

Where PWS_Name is the domain name of the PWS server and the long string
is 159 chars.

I have no idea if it is exploitable beyond just crashing PWS.
It bombs out with an Exception: access violation as reported by Dr.
Watson.
