Symptoms

When you attempt to change the description of a primary node that has at least one shared node mapped to it, you get the message:
    Changing the Description on a Shared Node is not allowed. The Description must be changed on a Primary Node.
When you dismiss that message, and try to retrieve properties for this primary node again, you get:
    Error retrieving Properties for Local Node '...': Server was unable to process request. ---> Session is invalid or expired.
The whole session crashes.
