Okay, here's where I demonsrate that I've been in theory-land too long and 
have lost touch with practice-land.  :)

It *looks* to me as though the new code tries a NetrShareEnum (with 'r')  
RPC call and, if that fails, goes back to the RAP NetShareEnum (no 'r')
call.  Is that what's happening?  There are a lot of servers out there
that won't support the RPC calls but will support RAP, so trying RPC and 
failing back to RAP is the way to go.

...but then, I learned a lot about such thing from you anyway.
