This has been there since at least NT 3.51. I've never been able to
connect to a server with two different ids.
Also, despite what they say, I suspect it's not for security reasons
but truely because of _bad_ design. Or at least it must be simpler for
them to handle it that way.
So their last sentence is a half-truth.
