There's an ugly workaround: 

	net use \\ip\share3 /user:username

"ip" means you have to type the ip address of the server.

You might try to put another netbios name for the same server into your local 
lmhosts and enable lmhosts resolution. I did not try this, but chances are this 
could work also.
