when passing a scripting dictionary in the session from one page to another, one of the items is having random text strings written over it.  what was once "4523" becomes "INNT/System32/asp.dll"

or "90."  Is this a problem with the vbscript dictionary?

If the scripting object is stored in an application object, you may have problems. According to the Web server readme, the scripting dictionary object is incorrectly marked as Both threaded instead of Apartment threaded so corruption may occur (see below):

The Scripting.Dictionary object is erroneously
marked as Both-threaded by IIS Setup. It should be marked as Apartment-threaded.

To change this, use the Registry Editor to open the following registry key:

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\
           CLSID  \{EE09B103-97E0-11CF-978F-00A02463E06F}
                   \InprocServer32

Change the named value for ThreadingModel to Apartment.
If you use the Dictionary object at Application scope
without making this change, corruption of data may occur.

the dictionary object is being stored in the session, not in the application.  would this still affect corruption of the data?

If the dictionary object is not shared between more than one session, the solution above probably does not apply - you may want to try the registry fix anyhow and see if there is any different behavior.
