Reproducible system lockup when running certain binaries off a network share

I've hit this bug a few times while trying to test Emsisoft's behavior blocker. Hopefully @Fabian Wosar is listening here but if not I'd be happy to submit this bug through another source....

Basically I create an .exe that triggers the behavior blocker, place it onto a SMB share, and then try to double-click it. Emsisoft seems like it hangs the whole system in this scenario... My mouse is a spinner and I can't click the start menu, etc.

Seems like it might unlock itself in about 10 minutes. If it helps, the file sharing location might disallow deletion which might be affecting the quarantine behavior?

10 minutes looks like it is hitting some form of timeout. We will look into it.

Thanks Fabian, you guys rock as usual :)

I've hit this a few times in the past too but never could figure out what the pattern was until today -- running a binary off a SMB share through windows explorer seems to be what's triggering it.
