Late reply I know....
This is more a limitation of the session setup requirements. The
authentication is done prior to the tcon&X so you've already got
the user credentials. The best option here I think is just setup
a 'guest' server (everyone gets mapped to guest) and store you're
dfs shares on that. You can use a virtual server for this.
