New fixes included in the Novell Client 2 SP4 for Windows (IR1):

1. Application can hang when a DFS junction target is to a folder that the current user does not have sufficient permissions to access. (Bug 940022)
2. Using the "Context:" field drop-down history selection during login could fail to override the use of "<DHCP>" in that field. (Bug 939137)
3. Whenever data has been manually entered into a DHCP-enabled field on the login dialog, DHCP will become diabled for that field if the login attempt is successful. (Bug 938947)
4. Invoking "Uninstall" for Novell Client from the new Windows 10 "Settings" apps list could fail, even though legacy Add/Remove Programs control panel still works. (Bug 937927)
5. "Novell DFS Junction Information" tab does not show in the Windows Explorer properties if DFS junction target is a folder rather than volume root. (Bug 937160)
6. Registeration of Novell Client shell extensions could fail during installation on Windows 10. (Bug 936791)
