I have a question along a similar vein.  Once an NT4 workstation connects 
to my Samba server (on RH 4.1), they are left with a network drive 
identified as "(none)".  Have you seen this happen before?  It would seem 
that the clients are not disconnecting the share; nor are they ever fully 
connecting it.
    Example (this is exactly what the "Disconnect Mapped Drive" dialog 
looks like):
    (none)  \\SAMBA\SHARE
    F:          \\NORMAL\SHARE
