 The 'workstation' trust account only speaks NT encrypted passwords.
With out it, the machine can log it self in, and it cant do the domain

 The repeated asking for passwords for each share is a similar problem,
if you turn encrpted passwords off, NT will not cache the password and
for each share you connect to, the password prompt appears.
