win2k and lost shares [was:Re: unknown %a]

Hi Dietrich,
So to make sure I understand:

1.User franz logs in.
2.user franz verifies the shares exist (HOW?) 
  do they show up in "My Network Places", or does he do a 'net view
  or what?
3.a couple of minutes later, user franz does step #2 (which is what,
EXACTLY), and 
  cannot see the three shares included by smb.conf.franz.

^^^^^^^Is this correct?

Question - can user franz STILL do a net use x: \\testdaten\test42  ???? and
have it work?

ok. here are my config files...

        workgroup = TEST
        netbios name = TESTDATEN
        server string = Server %v
        interfaces =
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        character set = iso8859-1
        min password length = 3
        map to guest = Never
        domain logons = Yes
        os level = 65
        preferred master = Yes
        domain master = Yes
        unix password sync = no
        logon drive = U:
        logon home = \\TESTDATEN\%U
        logon path = \\TESTDATEN\%U\profiles
        logon script = logon.bat
        wins support = yes
        printing = cups
        log level = 10
        printer driver location = \\TESTDATEN\printer$
        max disk size = 50
        security = domain
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.samba
        username map = /etc/samba/
           comment = U: %U - L: %L - G: %G - g: %g
           path = /image-in
           browseable = yes
           writeable = yes
           public = yes
include = /etc/samba/smb.conf.%U

        path = /samba/ressourcen/nocheine
        readonly = no
        comment =
        path = /samba/ressourcen/test42
        readonly = yes
        comment =
        path = /samba/ressourcen/wasweissich
        readonly = yes
        comment =

        path = /samba/ressourcen/nocheine
        readonly = no
        comment =
        path = /samba/ressourcen/test42
        readonly = yes
        comment =
        path = /samba/ressourcen/wasweissich
        readonly = yes
        comment =
root = Admin

rem @echo off
if %OS%==Windows_NT goto Windows_NT
net use u: /home
net use /persistent:no
rem net use p: \\TESTDATEN\public
net use g: \\TESTDATEN\gruppe

The problem is for example:

When user franz logging in in the Win2k Client all looks good. But after a
the shares [NOCHEINE], [TEST42] and [WASWEISSICH] are lost!
These shares are there for only a moment after the login!

I testet it with samba 2.2.1a and 2.2.2-pre as server and win2k service pack
as client.
