	Yes, but the SMB spec **specifically** says you're
	allowed to restrict to just one.

	The two-connection case is rare, and NT tries to
	keep you from making more than one connection. 
	Two connections were once used here for secretaries
	connecting as both themselves and as their bosses...

	Give me a call or send me your phone number: we should
	talk about this by voice...
