I can give a shoot at explaining the behavior and if I'm too off I hope 
I'll be corrected.

When you select Domain into which you want to login you specify the 
Domain where your credentials (username and password) should be verified 
but shares specified without Domain will be retrieved from the Domain 
your XP client belongs to.

I think what you want is to have 'logon home = \\%D\%U' instead of the 
one you get by default: '\\%N\%U'

Hope it helps,
