Intermittent IIS 400 Bad Request when using HttpWebResponse

I am using the following C# example against Exchange 2003:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms877306(v=exchg.65).aspx.

The sample code intermittently encounters a 400 "Bad Request" error when trying to save an Exchange appointment. The error occurs on the command-line:

PROPPATCHResponse = (System.Net.HttpWebResponse)PROPPATCHRequest.GetResponse();

How can I find the cause of this problem?

My initial inclimnation is that you are not encoding your XML characters (i.e., < should be &lt;). That would form a bad request. I would also recommend drilling down into the web resposne object to see if it gives more error deatils. The last thing is to print out the request object and make sure that it is properly formatted and isn't missing any parameters for any reason.

Sorry for the slow followup. I was passing a webdav string that contained (among other things) a timezone setting and the XML that specified the setting was mal-formed.
