My recollection was that they don't enforce this limit, they just say
"don't do it" in the license. YMMV, of course.

You CAN, however, connect to any number of shares: just don't map them to
drive letters. e.g. Start ... Run ... "\\server\share". You are connected
to \\server\share, without occupying any drive letters.
