Yes, that is easily shown.

However even with out using resource kit utilities, a service can log into
the same server as a the logged in user, and have access under it's own

This can be demonstrated with the schedule service.

So it seems that that restriction is in the client explorer shell of
Windows, and not something that is inherent in either NT server or NT
