I suggest you map the drive.  I think what is happening is that the
connection is reference counted, and you only have the access DB open on
the share.  When you compact, the files are closed (to then be re-opened
by the compactor), and the session goes away.  That's my best guess. (I
thought this had a grace period, but this is my theory anyway...).
