I have seen this on an entirely Microsoft network. So it appears that
in this case SAMBA is compatable :-)
It usually requires at the client side to disconnect from I: and
reconnecting it again.
It is a good idea in a login script that the client runs when logging
into a domain to verify a drive is mapped properly by testing access to
a file on it. If the access is not successful, then to disconnect and
reconnect the drive.
Some people just put a NET USE command in the login script, and ignore
the error it returns when the drive is already mapped. This works most
of the time.

definitely a faster answer than e-mailing me directly]
