have you tried the patch that was written by the same person that did the
"restrict anonymous" patch?  the solution is to refuse to allow the very
first anonymous IPC$ connection, and the clients then make an
authenticated IPC$ connection.  because _this_ is the first authenticated
connection, the [homes] connection is also properly authenticated,
therefore the internal processes in nt&95 get it sorted out.

part of the issue is that if resources are still open on a server, both
the client and the server still think that the user is logged on.  this is
deliberate and by design. and broken.
