Unfortunately, even when "net use" doesn't show any connections
cached, there might be an IPC connection of some kind lingering about,
which will prevent you from using a new login name.

If all else fails, use the DOS prompt and issue this command:

   net use * /d

Which deletes all existing connections to all servers.  You can
than log into the Samba box with new credentials.
