Unfortunatly it does not work the same way on Windows 2000.  This issue has been up 
before.  No one has solved the "problem".   

MultipleUsersOnConnection is not "supported" on Windows 2000 as W2K have no limits to 
how many processes can go through one connection (from 1024 on WinNT 4.0 WTS).

Andre, we have frozen migration to W2K due to this issue.  I would be very interrested to hear 
you tell us what kind of problems you get on the Samba server due to all those "virtual" 
clients conenction trough one process?
