There is a small workaround for this as Paul Aston has pointed out
previously on the samba-ntdom list I think.  The problem lies with the
NT redirector.  The workaround is to use a different server name ( or IP
) for the different user account.  For example

	net use x: \\server\share1 /user:user1
	net use z: \\xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx\share2 /user:user2

where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the IP address of <server> will succedd ( after
you provide the respective passwords of course ).
