No I cannot.  But see below for more comments.

Yes.  This sounds correct.  One interesting experiment
is to use the SU server from the NT 4 SP4 Resource Kit
and open a command window as another user.  From the normal
ogon session connect to a share on a Samba server.  Then connect
to another share on the same server from the SU command window,
but use the same user account as the previous connection.
Then you will be able to connect to the first share from
the SU window.

What would interesting to look at would be the netmon trace and
see of the vuid was the same or different in each connection.
IIRC it will be different (but representing the same user on the
Samba server).

cheers, jerry
