I installed Pegasus 3.12a for Win32 to Y:\PMAIL, where Y: is a Samba 2.0.5a 
drive, and set the mail folder location to Y:\PMAIL\MAIL.

No, I can't reproduce this. Works like a charm every time, even flogging
it with four clients running multiple copies each. (Although sometimes the 
login dialog doesn't come to the foreground, which got me worried over nothing
a couple of times :-))

Anything else specific to your setup that might help to diagnose this?
