BizTalk DW Reporting???

Last week we encountered this mysterious BizTalk error in the event log:

Faulting application btsntsvc.exe, version 3.6.1404.0, stamp 4674b0a4, faulting module kernel32.dll, version 5.2.3790.4480, stamp 49c51f0a, debug? 0, fault address 0x0000bef7.

The system log contains entries every minute saying  the BizTalkServerSend  service  terminated unexpectedly.

It happened at all of our customers after updating one of our BizTalk based applications to a new version. The only clue I could find was this support article from Microsoft that describes the same scenario. However in our case no dynamic Windows SharePoint Services (WSS) send port is used. But we do use static WSS send ports. After examining I found out that the binding of one of them was corrupted!

The update of our BizTalk based solution is automated, because it has to be applied at a lot of customers. Part of the process is modification of the specific binding file, by altering the URL to the specific SharePoint document library of the customer. It is located in a string encoded XML within the <TransportTypeData> element. Something went wrong when altering the encoded xml and corrupted the content of the <TransportTypeData> element.
