I tested the Windows 2000 hotfix from Q818528 with Terminal Server and 
Samba.  The hotfix adds the MultiUserEnabled registry parm which, when 
set to 1, essentially restores the MultipleUsersOnConnection behavior 
from NT4.  With MultiUserEnabled on the Windows 2000 Terminal Server, 
Windows will start a new TCP session for each Terminal Server user, and 
Samba will start a new smbd for each TS user that mounts 1 or more Samba 
shares.  It works as expected.

The hotfix does not install on Windows 2003 Servers, though.  Don't know 
about the plans for a 2003 hotfix.
