Shapefiles save in corrupted state to Windows Server 2008 R2 and above

After editing a shapefile from a network 2008 R2 or 2012 Windows server, the saved shapefile becomes corrupt.  All of the shapefile components are updated except for the .dbf file.  When saving the edited shapefile, ArcMap (10.2) appears to successfully saves the changes, that is with no errors.  Upon reloading the shapefile, ArcMap displays a mismatch between shapes and table error.

While testing shapefile editing on the local hard drive and on Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2008, the edits saved successfully and properly reloaded to ArcMap.

Can ESRI confirm this as a bug?  Is Windows 2008 R2 and Windows 2012 server not supported for 10.2 desktop?
