For those of you who have staff, or know of agencies who have moved to ESRI release 9.2 service pack 6 or later (including 9.3) I strongly recommend that you pass this link on to them.




Any spatial data editor using true curves may be subject to multiple serious errors if they enter or edit true curves and then run topology.  Our statewide cadastral layer has been corrupted, basically from integrating several county datasets, where this happened.  Back-ups really can't help once data is corrupted unless you can go back to before you loaded service pack 6 and can re-create all the work since then - you would have had to keep a record.  Service pack 1 at 9.3 DID NOT fix the entire problem.  ESRI is working on a Service Pack 2 for 9.3 but errors caused by the bug or bugs identified in the forum will be very difficult to fix.  This should be more well publicized than it has been given the nature of the damage it can cause.
