Hang on, checking meaning of your words here...

Excel has no issue with other shares, or simply the other programs that use those other shares are fine... thus neither appliaction nor share remained constant between your two comparisions?

Are your param's to each share equiv, or differences there too?

I've heard some acl related issues with M$ Office before in previous versions... maybe back around 3.0.4 to 3.0.6 range.
