The fix is a NT (Terminal Server especially) registry setting:
SYSTEM / CurrentControlSet / Services / rdr / parameters
Add the key - MultipleUsersOnConnection: REG_DWORD 0
This will tell the NT (terminal) server to start a new connection to the samba server for each
network connection vs. the samba server.
There are some info about this in the install-docs for Samba. The Microsoft
KnowledgeBase also has this info.
